Shillong: A leader of tribal chiefs, John Kharshiing, who had resigned as a member of the ruling coalition partner, the UDP in Meghalaya, today formally joined the Congress.

Kharshiing was escorted by more than 50 tribal chiefs when he was received by Chief Minister Mukul Sangma and Congress party chief D D Lapang at the Congress Bhavan here.

Not denying speculation that he was eying the 2013 polls in the state, the chairman of the Grand Council of Chiefs said that he would serve the party honestly in any capacity he was entrusted with.
