Jagdish Mukhi takes oath as Nagaland Governor


Jagdish Mukhi, on Friday, took oath as the new Nagaland Governor. 

Jagdish Mukhi was administered the oath of office at the Dr. Imkongliba Ao Hall in the Nagaland Raj Bhavan. 

Mukhi took the oath of office in the presence of Nagaland chief minister Neiphiu Rio, deputy CM Y Patton, MLAs and other senior officials of the state. 

Jagdish Mukhi succeeded RN Ravi as the Nagaland Governor. 

“Congratulations, Prof Jagdish Mukhi on taking oath as the new Governor of Nagaland. On behalf of the people of the state, I extend a very warm welcome to you. I wish you the best for your new assignment and also for the years ahead,” Nagaland CM Neiphiu Rio said. 

Jagdish Mukhi is also the Governor of Assam.

Earlier, RN Ravi was removed as Governor of Nagaland and was transferred to Tamil Nadu. 

Ravi’s removal is believed to be a result of his differences with the NSCN-IM in the ongoing Naga Peace Talks.
