New Delhi: President Ram Nath Kovind on Friday appointed BJP leaders Ganeshi Lal and Kummanam Rajasekharan, both long associated with the RSS, as Governors of Odisha and Mizoram respectively, as per an official statement.

Bihar Governor Satya Pal Malik was having the additional charge of Odisha since March 21 after Governor SC Jamir completed his tenure.

Rajasekharan would replace Lt. General Nirbhay Sharma (retd) as Governor of Mizoram after the latter completes his tenure on May 28, the Rashtrapati Bhavan said in the statement.

Both Lal, who is BJP Disciplinary Committee National President, and Rajasekharan, who is BJP Kerala President, have been RSS activists.

While Odisha would be holding its next assembly elections in early 2019, Mizoram would hold its elections later this December.
