Singh was there with the BJP President Amit Shah for the oath of the National People's Party (NPP) president Conrad Sangma as the Chief Minister of Meghalaya.

The regional parties' ruling alliance, Meghalaya Progressive Alliance (MPA) of ten years back, had a bitter experience as it collapsed exactly a year after its formation in 2008 because of differences among the allies that spun out of control of the then chief minister Donkupar Roy.

Important portfolios like Finance, Home, Revenue, Commerce and Industries and PWD were retained by the NPP ministers.

Arsene Wenger uses boxer analogy to describe Arsenal's nightmare run of form
Arsenal put their recent woes behind them with a fine 2-0 victory over AC Milan at the San Siro on Thursday night. Spanish global Costa has now scored six goals for Atletico since returning to the club from Chelsea in January.

Zeliang delayed his resignation by two days in an attempt to secure the support of the BJP despite the BJP-NDPP combine having staked claim to form the government with the support of 32 MLAs in the 60-member House.

A stark feature of the MDA ministry is the absence of women in the 12-member cabinet, especially since the NPP had projected Conrad's sister, Agatha, a former Union minister, as its chief minister nominee. The parties in the MDA fought the elections on their own ideologies and beliefs, as Conrad Sangma told this newspaper. However, in the 59-seater assembly, this means a no clear majority for any party to form a government.

The lone Hill State People Democratic Party legislator to get a cabinet berth is Samlin Malngiang, who has been tasked to look after public health engineering, secretariat administration and legal metrology.

Trump Hotels brand ousted from Panama property
The hotel and most of the apartments were sold a year ago to Fintiklis's Ithaca Capital Partners, which is based in Miami. The Panama hotel would be the fourth property that removed Trump's name since he won the 2016 presidential election.

HSPDP President Ardent Miller Basaiawmoit said that the party is not going with Conrad K Sangma led government. 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".

"I am confident that whatever challenges we have before us, this coalition government will be able to face them. We will work to take our state forward".

The party's two MLAs are signatories to the letter of support to the NPP-led coalition government.
