Lok Sabha member from Meghalaya’s Tura, Agatha K Sangma has finally tied the nuptial knot on Thursday with her fiancé Patrick Rongma Marak, a doctor.
A proud elder brother and state Chief Minister Conrad Sangma has flooded his official Twitter account with images of his bride-sister and the groom.

He also wrote, “Here comes our bride! It is an extremely emotional moment to see our sister walking down the aisle today. Our Papa would be so proud.”
Earlier Conrad paid tribute to his father, the late PA Sangma, on the day of his sister Agatha Sangma’s wedding.
Sangma was also accompanied by Assam finance minister Himanta Biswa Sarma in paying his respects.
Sangma, sharing images in his official Twitter handle of them paying their respects at the memorial stone where his father was laid to rest said, “Sought blessings from my late Father before Agatha exchange her wedding vows with Patrick.”
“Like every parent, he would’ve been proud to walk her down the aisle and we wish he were here today,” Conrad also wrote.
In the tweet, the Meghalaya Chief Minister also thanked Himanta for accompanying him.
