Tripathi’s Swearing in: Mizo Govt Yet To Decide

Aizawl, Mar 30 : Mizoram government is yet to decide when the West Bengal Governor Keshari Nath Tripathi, appointed by the President to take additional charge of Mizoram, will be sworn-in here. State Protocol Officer David L Pachuau said that the state government was likely to take up the matter by Monday.

State’s Governor Dr Aziz Qureshi was sacked by the Centre yesterday and Tripathi was appointed to take additional charge of the governor until further appointment of another governor for the state, a Rashtrapati Bhavan communique said.

Raj Bhavan officials in Aizawl on Sunday said that the official letter stating that Qureshi ceased to be the governor of Mizoram was received from the Rashtrapati Bhavan.

Meanwhile, Qureshi, who was in Delhi since March 21 returned to Aizawl on Sunday morning, the officials said.

The 74 year-old governor was transferred from Uttarkhand to Mizoram on December 30 last year and assumed office in Aizawl on January 9. With the latest sacking, the state has seen the departure of six Governors in about nine months since the NDA regime assumed office.
