Gujarat Governor takes additional charge of MP


Bhopal, Sep 8: Gujarat Governor O P Kohli today took over the additional charge as Governor of Madhya Pradesh. Madhya Pradesh High Court Acting Chief Justice Rajendra Menon administered the oath of office to Kohli at Raj Bhawan, which was attended by a battery of dignitaries including the State Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan.

With this, Kohli has become the 26th Governor of Madhya Pradesh. He has assumed the charge of office a day after Ram Naresh Yadav (89) demitted the office of MP Governor after completing his full five-year term.

Yadav, a UPA appointee came under scanner after he was accused of rigging a forest guard recruitment test conducted by the infamous Vyavsayik Pariksha Mandal (Vyapam) in 2015. MP Special Task Force earlier probing Vyapam scam had booked the Governor for fraud and other sections of IPC.

Thereafter, he moved the MP High Court for quashing the FIR against him. In May 2015, the High Court quashed the FIR against him, holding that he enjoyed immunity against prosecution while in office.
