President Pranab Mukherjee on Wednesday appointed former Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit as the Governor of Kerala.


"The President has accepted the resignation of Shri Nikhil Kumar, Governor of Kerala, with immediate effect," said a statement issued by the President's Secretariat on Wednesday.

"The President has also been pleased to make ... Smt. Sheila Dixit as Governor of Kerala vice Shri Nikhil Kumar," the statement said.

Mukherjee appointed Karnataka Governor H.R. Bhardwaj to discharge the functions of the Governor of Kerala until a new Governor takes charge.

Uttar Pradesh Governor B.L. Joshi was appointed as the Governor of the same state for a second term with effect from the date of him assuming charge.

Dikshit served as the Chief Minister of Delhi from 1998 to 2013.

In the Delhi Assembly polls last year, the Congress leader lost to Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) supremo Arvind Kejriwal.
