Kalraj Mishra sworn in as Himachal Pradesh governor

Himachal Pradesh High Court Chief Justice V Ramasubramanian administered the oath of office and secrecy to Mishra.

Former Union minister Kalraj Mishra was sworn in as the Governor of Himachal Pradesh in a ceremony at the Raj Bhawan here on July 22. He replaced Acharya Devvrat, who has been shifted to Gujarat.

Mishra, 78, had resigned from the Narendra Modi-led government as Minister for Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises in 2017 after he crossed the age of 75, the BJP's unofficial age limit for holding an elected post.

The Uttar Pradesh leader did not contest the Lok Sabha elections this year.
