The Newly elected MLA from Ampati Legislative Assembly Constituency (LAC), Miani D Shira took oath as member of the tenth State Assembly today.
The oath of office and secrecy was administered by Assembly Speaker, Dr Donkupar Roy in the old Assembly office at Khyndai Lad.
She was accompanied by her father and former Chief Minister, Dr Mukul Sangma, her mother and Mahendraganj MLA Dikkanchi D Shira among other Congress legislators.
Shira was elected from Ampati with a margin of just 3,191 votes. Former CM and Congress leader Mukul Sangma had originally won from Ampati in this year's assembly election. Sangma had contested and won from two constituencies and vacated the Ampati seat, which led to the May's by-poll.
