Kalraj Mishra Appointed as Himachal Governor


Senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Kalraj Mishra was appointed as the Governor of Himachal Pradesh on Monday replacing Acharya Devvrat who has been transferred and appointed as the Governor of Gujarat.

A press communiqué from the Rashtrapati Bhavan said that the appointments of Kalraj Mishra and Acharya Devvrat will come into effect from the dates they assume charge of their respective offices.
