Three Cabinet Ministers Dr. Flinder A. Khonglam (HSPDP) Minister, Industries Mr Indro Pariat Minister, (HSPDP) Excise and Mr Kitdor Syiem (APHLC) Minister, Community Development – have joined the Congress(I).

With this the Party’s strength in the Assembly has gone up to 30.

IN their letters to the President of the MPCC (I) they have stated that after their association with Capt. W A Sangma Chief Minister of Meghalaya for more than a year now they realized that “if speedy development of the State is to take place in this poor and backward region it can be done only through the Indian National Congress(I) under the able leadership of Capt. Sangma in the State and the able guidance and dynamic leadership of Prime Minister Mrs Indira Gandhi in the country as a whole.”

Consequently, after due consideration and consultations made with their respective electorate they decided to join the Indian National Congress on the 18th of May 1984.

Capt. Sangma as President of the Meghalaya PCC(I) has duly admitted them into the party with effect from May 18th after consultation with the respective DCC(I) Presidents.
