Mumbai: President of India Droupadi Murmu on Sunday appointed Jharkhand Governor Ramesh Bais as the new governor of Maharashtra in place of Bhagat Singh Koshyari after accepting his resignation.
It may note that Mr Koshiyari's exit comes following a recent controversy over his comment on Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj among others great personalities of Maharashtra.
Maharashtra opposition parties including UBT, Congress and NCP demanded his resignation for his controversial remarks.
Mr Koshyari had last month told Prime Minister Narendra Modi that he wished to step down from the top post. (UNI)
