Imphal: Najma Heptulla will take oath as the Governor of Manipur on Sunday at Raj Bhavan here, officials said.

She will be administered the oath of office by Acting Chief Justice of the High Court of Manipur R R Prasad at 11.30 AM on Sunday.

Heptulla arrived here this afternoon at Imphal International Airport where she was received by state Chief Secretary O Nabakishore, Director General of Police L M Khaute and other officials.

Heptulla, 76, had last month resigned as Minority Affairs Minister from the Union Cabinet.

The resignation had come as Prime Minister Narendra Modi is believed to have set an unwritten writ of '75-year age bar' for ministers.

Meghalaya Governor V Shanmuganathan is currently holding the additional charge as Manipur Governor.
