P S Sreedharan Pillai took oath as the Governor of Goa on Thursday, replacing B S Koshyari, who was holding the additional charge of the state along with Maharashtra.

Chief Justice of the Bombay High Court Dipankar Datta administered the oath of office to P S Sreedharan Pillai at the Raj Bhavan. Chief Minister Pramod Sawant was also present at the oath-taking ceremony.

Koshyari had been holding the additional charge as the governor of Goa since August 2020 after the transfer of Satya Pal Malik from the post.

Talking to reporters after the swearing-in ceremony, the chief minister welcomed the new governor and said that his guidance would be sought on different issues related to the state.

Pillai was serving as Governor of Mizoram before he was shifted to the coastal state.

Assembly elections in Goa are due in February 2022.
