Meghalaya cabinet reshuffled

Shillong: Congress-led Meghalaya United Alliance government Chief Minister Mukul Sangma Tuesday reshuffled his cabinet by inducting three new faces in his ministry.

Governor R.S. Mooshahary administered the oaths of office and secrecy to the newly-inducted ministers at a simple function organised in the Darbar Hall of Raj Bhavan in the morning.

However Sangma Monday evening had submitted the names of four Congress legislators - S.W. Rymbai, Shitlang Pale, Saleng Sangma and Bharatiya Janata Party leader-turned-Congress legislator Alexander Hek - to Mooshahary to be inducted in the ministry.

The cabinet reshuffle came about after Sangma's deputy Rowell Lyngdoh announced last week that Sangma has lost the support of a majority of the 28 legislators.

Congress general secretary and state in-charge Dhani Ram Shandil said the reshuffle was aimed at strengthening the ruling coalition government.

Congress president Sonia Gandhi has invited the rebel Congress legislators led by former chief minister D.D. Lapang to meet her Tuesday.
