Okram Ibobi Singh was Thursday sworn in as the Chief Minister of Manipur for the third consecutive term.

Governor Gurbachan Jagat administered the oath of office and secrecy to Ibobi at the Raj Bhavan in Imphal.

After the swearing-in ceremony, Ibobi (63) said that he would continue to fulfill the dreams and aspirations of the people.

Later, he reportedly left for New Delhi to meet Congress party's central leaders, probably to finalize the expansion of his ministry.

Ibobi was elected to the assembly for the first time in 1984 when he won from Khangabok constituency as an independent. In 1990, he got elected from the same constituency on a Congress ticket. He was sworn in as the 11th Chief Minister of the state on March 7, 2002.

In the recent elections, the Congress won 42 seats under the leadership of Ibobi in the 60-seat assembly.
