These are the 4 new Governors named by President Kovind

Published Date:

President of India Ram Nath Kovind has named four new governors. The names also include one of the NDA’s senior-most ministers, Thaawarchand Gehlot, and shifted four others on Tuesday.

The naming comes amid speculation of a major cabinet reshuffle. It has already set in motion the Union government’s first major overhaul since it returned to power two years ago.

The appointments came as BJP senior leaders and its allies flew to New Delhi ahead of a possible cabinet reshuffle.

President Kovind has appointed Union social justice minister Gehlot as the governor of Karnataka. The former Gujarat minister Mangubhai Chhaganbhai Patel will be the governor of Madhya Pradesh. However, BJP MP Hari Babu Kambhampati has been named the governor of Mizoram, and former Goa minister Rajendra Vishwanath Arlekar will serve as governor of Himachal Pradesh.

“The above appointments will take effect from the dates they assume charge of their respective offices,” the statement from the Rashtrapati Bhavan says.

This suggests that the NDA government is now set to enter a new phase in its second stint. PM Narendra Modi-led government currently has 21 cabinet ministers, nine ministers of state with independent charge and 23 ministers of state.
