New Delhi, July 6 IANS | 2 months ago

Gujarat Governor Kamla Beniwal, who had an uneasy relationship with Narendra Modi when he was Gujarat chief minister, was Sunday shifted to Mizoram in a minor reshuffle of governors.


Rajasthan Governor Margaret Alva, who is due to finish her term in about a month, has been given additional responsibility of the state.

Beniwal, 87, whose tenure will also end in a few months, will take over from Mizoram Governor Vakkom Purushothaman who has been appointed as governor of Nagaland for the remainder of his term.

Beniwal had differences with the Modi-led Gujarat government over appointment of Lokayukta.

A Rashtrapati Bhavan communique said that Purushothaman has been appointed as governor of Nagaland for the remainder of his term, but will continue to hold the additional charge as governor of Tripura.

The communique said that Alva would discharge the functions of the governor of Gujarat, in addition to her own duties, until other arrangements were made.

The appointments will take effect from the dates the incumbents assume charge of their respective offices, the communique said.

There was speculation that Modi government will take decision on appointment of governors before the start of budget session Monday.

Home Minister Rajnath Singh had said earlier this week that the appointments will be made soon.

Some governors, appointed by the previous United Progressive Alliance government, have resigned.
