Ranchi: Draupadi Murmu was Monday sworn in as the first woman Governor of Jharkhand.

Murmu succeeds Syed Ahmed, who will take over as Manipur Governor.

She headed the BJP's Mayurbhanj district unit in Odisha and had represented Rairangpur in the Odisha assembly.

Jharkhand High Court Chief Justice Virendra Singh administered the oath of office to Murmu.
Jharkhand Chief Minister Raghubar Das, his cabinet colleagues, former Chief Ministers Shibu Soren and Arjun Munda, Union Minister of State for Rural Development Sudarshan Bhagat and a host of other dignitaries were present during the oath-taking ceremony.
