MK Narayanan sworn in as WB Governor
Kolkata: Former National Security Advisor MK Narayanan was Sunday sworn in as governor of West Bengal in a brief ceremony at the Raj Bhavan here.
Narayanan replaces Bihar`s Governor Devanand Konwar, who had taken on the state`s additional charge after Gopalkrishna Gandhi ended his term in December.
The former NSA was administered the oath of office by Calcutta High Court`s Chief Justice MS Shah at a brief function in the Raj Bhavan at 4 p.m.
West Bengal Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee, his cabinet colleagues, assembly Speaker Hasim Abdul Halim, leader of opposition Partha Chattopadhyay of the Trinamool Congress and other dignitaries attended the swearing-in ceremony.
"The programme continued for almost half an hour at the Raj Bhavan`s Throne Room," a Raj Bhavan official said.
Gopalkrishna Gandhi`s term ended Dec 13 last year. Konwar took over the additional charge from Dec 14.
