“It is my responsibility to ensure that we carry everybody along,” newly elected Chief Minister said.
He said that if the overall governance in the State is improved then ultimately the overall development in the State will also go up in a big way.

When asked how confident he is that the coalition will survive, he said that the people who are in the alliance are committed and focus to the cause of the people and the State.
“When your commitment is there then we will discussed our challenges. I know we would be able to provide stability since the team is good,” newly elected Chief Minister asserted.
