West Bengal Governor Keshari Nath Tripathi, who has been given the additional charge of Mizoram, would be sworn-in on April 4.
State Protocol Officer David L Pachuau told PTI that a ceremonial reception would be accorded to Mr Tripathi after he arrives at Lengpui Airport near Aizawl on April 4 and he would be sworn-in at the Raj Bhavan at 4 pm that day.
Former Mizoram Governor Aziz Qureshi, who was removed by the Centre on Saturday, would leave Aizawl on the same day, he said.
Meanwhile, Mizo Zirlai Pawl (MZP), a Mizo student body, in a statement said that they will stage a demonstration in front of the Raj Bhavan on the day Mr Tripathi is scheduled to swear-in. They will protest against what they termed as,”the Centre using Mizoram as gubernatorial dumping ground”.
The MZP also intends to stage a protest demonstration on the same issue when President Pranab Mukherjee visits the state on April 9 to attend the convocation of the Mizoram University.
