State Governor Brig (Retd) BD Mishra administered the oath of office and secrecy to Khandu at a function organised at the Dorjee Khandu Convention Centre here.

Eleven Cabinet ministers, including Deputy Chief Minister Chowna Mein, were also administered oath along with Khandu. Six sitting Cabinet ministers and two newcomers have been included in the new ministry.
