G K Gandhi sworn in as Bihar governor

January 31, 2006 10:42 IST

West Bengal Governor Gopal Krishna Gandhi took over additional charge as the governor of Bihar on Tuesday.

He was administered the oath of office and secrecy by Patna High Court Chief Justice J N Bhat, in a ceremony at the Raj Bhavan.

Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, state assembly Speaker Udai Narain Chaudhary, legislative council chairman Jabir Hussain, several state ministers and top officials attended the oath-taking ceremony.

Gandhi, the grandson of Mahatma Gandhi, was given the additional charge of Bihar after the resignation of Governor Buta Singh on January 26 in the wake of his indictment by the Supreme Court for his role in the controversial dissolution of the state assembly.
