Mukul M Sangma was sworn in as the new chief minister of Meghalaya on his 45th birthday on Tuesday.
Governor Ranjit Shekhar Mooshahary administered the oath of office and secrecy of the Chief Minister in the afternoon at the Raj Bhavan here. Apart from Sangma, BM Lanong and JA Lyngdoh from the United Democratic Party and Independent member AT Mondol were also sworn in as Cabinet Ministers. Eight of Sangma’s cabinet colleagues would be inducted later. Sangma is heading to New Delhi to finalise the list of the eight others with Congress President Sonia Gandhi. Soon after the swearing in ceremony, Sangma drove to the secretariat, and spelled out the priorities of his new government.
“My government would give special focus on youth to realise their potential and also uplift the condition of the poor and infirm,” Sangma said.
Sharing concern on Meghalaya’s cloak and dagger politics, which saw 25 governments in 39 years, Sangma said, lessons must be “learnt from past mistakes” and use those experiences to build on the future with “sacrifice, unity and responsibility.”
