Om Prakash Kohli will be the new governor of Gujarat, while Padmanabha Acharya take charge of Nagaland's Raj Bhavan. Padmanabha Acharya has already been provided with the additional charge of Tripura. And the new governors for other states, Goa and Mizoram are yet to be decided.
Margaret Alva was former governor of Gujarat and Vakkom Purushothaman was governor of Nagaland.
After coming in to the power, the BJP-led NDA government informally communicated to few governors that they should put in their papers, so that new governors could be appointed at their places.
