Anandiben Patel sworn-in as UP governor

Tuesday, 30 July 2019 | PNS | Lucknow

Anandiben Patel was sworn-in as the first woman Governor of Uttar Pradesh after Independence, here on Monday.

Chief Justice of Allahabad High Court Govind Mathur administered the oath of office to the 28th Governor of the state At Raj Bhawan in the presence of several dignitaries, including Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, outgoing Governor Ram Naik, ministers and senior officials.

Outgoing Governor Ram Naik set up a new tradition on Monday when he attended the swearing-in ceremony of his successor.

At first, the outgoing Governor sat at the centre between Chief Justice Govind Mathur and Anandiben Patel but after she took oath, Naik shifted to the side, giving the centre seat to the new Governor.

Anandiben Patel arrived at the Chaudhary Charan Singh  Airport in Lucknow around 9:45 am and was given a formal guard of honour at the state hanger in the presence of the Chief Minister and others.

Before Patel, Sarojini Naidu had served as the first woman Governor of United Province between August 15, 1947 to March 2, 1949.

Before coming to Lucknow as the Governor of UP, Anandiben Patel was holding the gubernatorial post in Madhya Pradesh since January, 2018.

Before being appointed Governor of MP, Anandiben Patel  was the Chief Minister of Gujarat from May 22, 2014, after Narendra Modi left the post following his election as the Prime Minister, till she resigned after the Gujarat assembly elections in November 2017.

She had also held important portfolios in the Gujarat Cabinet from 1998 to 2014.
