    New Delhi: President Pranab Mukherjee on Tuesday appointed new Governors for four states.

    Four new governors are Kalyan Singh (Rajasthan), Vajubhai Rudabhai Vala (Karnataka), C. Vidyasagar Rao (Maharashtra) and Mridula Sinha (Goa). The Central government sent the list of names to the President, whose office appointed the governors.

    Senior BJP leader and Uttar Pradesh heavyweight Kalyan Singh will replace UPA appointee Margaret Alva, whose tenure in Rajasthan ended earlier this month. Vidyasagar Rao, a former Union minister from Andhra Pradesh, will be Maharashtra's new governor after K. Sankaranarayanan resigned on Sunday following an abrupt transfer order to Mizoram issued in the middle of the night.

    Vajubhai Rudabhai Vala, Speaker of Gujarat Legislative Assembly, will be the next Governor of Karnataka while BJP Mahila Morcha leader Mridula Sinha will be the Goa governor.
