Following the Saturday results shaped a fractured mandate, the state governor Ganga Prasad invited Sangma to form the government.

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.

Sangma on Wednesday allotted portfolios to the newly inducted ministers, while keeping a few to himself including finance, personnel, planning.

Watching the ceremony were Home Minister Rajnath Singh, BJP President Amit Shah, Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal, Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister Pema Khandu, Manipur Chief Minister N. Biren Singh, designated Nagaland Chief Minister Neiphiu Rio and former Assam and Mizoram Chief Ministers Prafulla Kumar Mahanta and Zoramthanga. Congress leader PL Punia of Meghalaya called the proposed alliance between BJP, NPP and others in Meghalaya "lethal for democracy".

"It has never been easy to keep a coalition government stable in Meghalaya and evidently, Conrad has a tough job at hand to keep the allies happy and solid behind him, especially when the Congress €" which has emerged the single largest party €" will be on the prowl for an opportunity to storm back. "We now see there is a possibility to have such a government where the NPP-led coalition could have easily been formed with 32 MLAs", Basaiawmoit said.

Emerging from the meeting, he told journalists that the Meghalaya Democratic Alliance (MDA) government will soon present a budget.

Sangma also met Regional Democratic Alliance chairman Donkupar Roy at his residence.
