"I am not like a Chief Minister to you. I am like your brother or your child. I will serve you till the end. With the blessings of the Prime Minister, I once again assure you that the poll pledges we made would be fulfilled," Deb said after taking oath as the tenth chief minister of the state.
The new government will work hard to bring about overall development in the state, the CM said.
"We will initiate development projects with a major thrust on education and healthcare. Good governance happens to be our topmost priority," Deb added.
