Power Minister Comingone Ymbon today resigned from the Mukul Sangma cabinet due to personal reasons.

"I hereby tender my resignation as Minister i/c Power, GAD and CnRD w.e.f. from today the 4th December, 2017 on personal grounds," Ymbon said in a letter to Chief Minister Mukul Sangma.

Ymbon was sworn in as Minister in August this year. Sources close to him said that he would not seek re- on ticket for the elections due early next year.

Three other senior leaders of the party including party president and four times chief minister D D Lapang and two cabinet ministers have also announced they are not contesting next year's assembly elections.
