NEW DELHI, July 21 -The government on Saturday appointed new Governors in four states, including in the politically restive West Bengal where former MP and noted Supreme Court lawyer Jagdeep Dhankhar has been named for the post.

Dhankhar (68), who was Union Deputy Minister of Parliamentary Affairs in 1990-91, quit the Congress in 2003 and became a member of the BJP. He replaces Keshari Nath Tripathi, whose term comes to an end later next week, according to a Rashtrapati Bhavan communique.

Seventy-seven-year-old Anandiben Patel, who was appointed as Governor of Madhya Pradesh in January 2018, has been shifted to Uttar Pradesh, it said.

Veteran BJP leader and Bihar Governor Lalji Tandon replaces Patel in Madhya Pradesh. He was appointed Governor in August last year, the communique said, adding, Phagu Chauhan will replace Tandon as Bihar Governor.

BJP veteran from Chhattisgarh Ramesh Bais, who was denied a party mandate this year, has been appointed as the Governor of Tripura. The post was with Kaptan Singh Solanki since August last year. Solanki was the Governor of Haryana from July 2014 and then of Tripura. His term comes to an end on July 27.
