Jaipur, Apr 28: Two days after the death of the then Rajasthan Governor, Prabha Rau, Punjab Governor Shivraj Patil was on Wednesday, Apr 28 given additional charge of the state.

Patil was sworn in at a simple function in Raj Bhawan.

Rajasthan High Court Chief Justice Jagdish Bhalla administered the oath of office.

Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot, cabinet ministers and senior state bureaucrats attended the swearing-in ceremony.
