Thaawar Chand Gehlot to be new Governor of Karnataka, Mizoram gets another new Guv

 

New Delhi: In a major decision just ahead of possible cabinet expansion, Union Minister of Social Justice and Empowerment and the Leader of the House in Rajya Sabha, Thaawar Chand Gehlot, was on Tuesday appointed as the new Governor of Karnataka.
Mr Gehlot would replace veteran BJP leader from Gujarat Vajubhai Vala.


The move to appoint Gehlot as a Governor would also require party leadership and Prime Minister Narendra Modi to look for a new Leader of the House in the Upper House.


Mizoram in the northeast would get another 'new Governor'. Notably, over half a dozen Governors have served the state since 2014. Kerala BJP leader P S Sreedharan Pillai, the incumbent Governor of Mizoram, has been transferred and appointed as Governor of poll-bound Goa, a Rashtrapati Bhavan communique said.


Dr Hari Babu Kambhampati will now be the new Governor of Mizoram.


Kambhampati earlier represented Visakhapatnam in Andhra Pradesh as the party MP.


Hari Babu was elected to the Lok Sabha from Visakhapatnam constituency in 2014 defeating YSRC's Y.S Vijayamma, wife of former Chief Minister late YS Rajasekhara Reddy, with a big margin.


He is in fact the second leader from the Telugu states to be appointed as the Governor after Bandaru Dattatreya.


Himachal Pradesh Governor Dattatreya would now be transferred and appointed as Governor of Haryana.


Satyadev Narayan Arya, Governor of Haryana has been transferred and appointed as Governor of Tripura.


Ramesh Bais, incumbent Tripura Governor will now take charge as the Governor of Jharkhand, BJP-ruled Madhya Pradesh too would get a new Governor in the form of Mangubhai Chhaganbhai Patel, a former Gujarat Minister. Rajendra Vishwanath Arlekar will be the new Governor in Himachal Pradesh.


All the appointments will take effect from the dates they assume charge, the communique said.


In Mizoram, Kamla Beniwal was appointed in July 2014 and since then several leaders have held the gubernatorial post.
Vinod Kumar Duggal held additional charge followed by K. K. Paul also as an additional charge from September 16, 2014 to January 8, 2015


The post was also held by Keshari Nath Tripathi, Lt General (Retd) Nirbhay Sharma, Kummanam Rajasekharan, Jagdish Mukhi (additional charge) and P S. Sreedharan Pillai, who had taken charge on October 25, 2019
