Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh said the perception of people in Meghalaya will change after the BJP has gained victory in the Northeast.

Singh, along with BJP president Amit Shah, attended the swearing-in-ceremony of Conrad Sangma-led coalition government in Meghalaya, where the BJP is also part.

"We've not seen decisive and sustained changes yet in Pakistan's behaviour, but certainly we are continuing to engage with Pakistan over areas where we think they can play a helpful role in changing the calculus of the Taliban", said Alice Wells, Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Alice South and Central Asia.

Among those present at the ceremony were Conrad's mother Soradini K. Sangma, his wife M. Chandi A. Sangma and his younger sister and South Tura MLA Agatha K. Sangma.

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.

During the first ever cabinet meeting, Chief Secretary also briefed the Ministers on different issues of the states besides the schemes and programmes in the state.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday termed the BJP's performance in Tripura an "ideological victory" and said the message should be spread across the country.

The biggest challenge for Conrad Sangma, who took office as Meghalaya Chief Minister on Wednesday, is to ensure that his coalition government survives the five-year term.

"We want a non-Congress and non-BJP government", Basaiawmoit said.

Conrad Sangma has claimed support of 34 MLAs.

After a massive win in the North-East states of Meghalaya, Tripura, and Nagaland, the Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) has set its eyes on the southern state of Karnataka, which is due for elections in the coming two months. Having joined the government, the BJP's activities elsewhere will come under closer scrutiny and may impact the life of the coalition.

Banteidor Lyngdoh and Hamletson Dohling of the People's Democratic Front (PDF) also took oath as ministers.
