Sreedharan Pillai sworn-in as Goa Governor

Panaji, 15 July: P.S. Sreedharan Pillai on Thursday took oath as the Governor of Goa, replacing B.S. Koshyari, who was holding the additional charge of the state along with Maharashtra.

Chief Justice of the Bombay High Court Dipankar Datta administered the oath of office to Mr. Pillai in the morning at the Raj Bhavan, where Chief Minister Pramod Sawant was also present.

Mr. Pillai was serving as Governor of Mizoram before he was shifted to the coastal state.
