Governor to take oath in J&K today

Satyapal Malik, the newly-appointed Governor of J&K, will be administered the oath of office on Thursday, ending the five-decade-long practice of retired bureaucrats being appointed to the post, officials said on Wednesday. Mr. Malik,72, has experience of working with almost all political hues of the country, and will be the first career politician to assume the position after Karan Singh, who held the office from 1965 to 1967. He arrived in Srinagar in a chartered plane on Wednesday. Outgoing Governor N.N. Vohra has called on Prime Minister Narendra Modi on a courtesy visit.
