He also said, "I hope both the governments in Meghalaya and Assam work in tandem to bolster development of both states and advance the mutual interests for the benefit of all sections of the people".

The Congress tried to retain power in Meghalaya by sharing power with the regional parties.

Soradini Sangma was present at the sprawling greens of the Raj Bhavan here to watch her son take oath as the 12th chief minister of the state.

Meghalaya is the second state, after Manipur and Goa, where the Congress has not been able to forge a post-poll alliance with any of the regional parties despite emerging as the single-largest party. "The UDP was offered two options €" the party was offered to head the government with Congress providing the support for stability else the UDP leadership was offered to head the government for a period of two and half years while Congress would have led for the remaining portion of the tenure.
