Shillong, JulY 7 (UNI) Meghalaya's Independent MLA Predickson G. Momin, who died here yesterday, was laid to rest at his home constituency Rongjeng today.

Meghalaya Governor M M Jacob expressed shock and grief while condoling the sudden demise of Mr P G Momin in the prime of his life ''when he had so much to contribute to the public good''.

Terming Mr Momin ''as the rising star in the political firmament of Meghalaya,'' Mr Jacob said his death would create a vacuum for the state of Meghalaya.

Chief Minister JD Rymbai and his cabinet colleagues and MLAs cutting across party lines condoled the untimely death of Mr Momin.
