President appoints five Governors, one Lieutenant-Governor

President appoints five Governors, one Lieutenant-Governor”

Jagdish Mukhi is Governor of Assam, Ganga Prasad is the Governor of Meghalaya and retired Admiral DK Joshi takes over Andaman and Nicobar islands.

It may be mentioned that the State has been without a full-fledged Governor since the sudden resignation of V Shanmuganathan in January this year. Purohit was holding the additional charge of Meghalaya.

Prasad began his political career in Bihar when he was elected as a first-time Member of Legislative Council (MLC) in 1994. During his tenure as an MLC, he led the Opposition from front for 5 years in the state assembly. When NDA came to power in Bihar, Ganga Prasad held the crucial position as the leader of Bihar Legislative Council. President Ram Nath Kovind has appointed five governors for the states of Bihar, Tamil Nadu, Assam, Meghalaya and Arunachal Pradesh.

In 1955, he retired as a Brigadier from the Indian Army.

Brigadier (Retd) BD Mishra, who was the Commander of the NSG (Black Cat Commandos) Counter-Hijack Task Force that was involved in rescue operations after an Indian Airlines aircraft was hijacked in 1993, will be the Governor of Arunachal Pradesh.

Admiral (retd) Joshi resigned as the 21st Chief of the Naval Staff in February 2014, a year before his due retirement, after a submarine accident off the Mumbai coast, saying he was stepping down taking moral responsibility for "accidents and incidents which have taken place during the past few months".

Mr. Mukhi took to active politics on June 25, 1975 when the Emergency was clamped.

Mr. Mukhi had earlier held the portfolios of Finance, Planning, Excise & Taxation and Higher Education in the Delhi Government.

Mr. Malik, an agriculturist and social worker, completed his B.Sc and LL.B from Meerut University and holds a Diploma in Parliamentary Affairs from Institute of Constitutional & Parliamentary Studies run by the Parliament of India.
