AGARTALA, July 29 (TIWN) Former Union Minister and seven-time Lok Sabha Member from Chhattisgarh Ramesh Bais, here on Monday, took over as the 18th Governor of Tripura, succeeding Kaptan Singh Solanki. The Chief Justice of Tripura High Court, Justice Sanjay Karol, administered oath of office to Mr. Bais in the presence of Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb and senior officials of the administration.

The 72-year-old Bais was sworn in by Tripura High Court Chief Justice Sanjay Karol at the old Raj Bhavan.

Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb, his cabinet colleagues and leaders of several political parties, besides army and police officers attended the event.

However, the Congress and the Communist Party of India-Marxist leaders, including former Chief Minister Manik Sarkar, kept away from the ceremony.

“With the help of the central government, I would do my best for the development of Tripura,” the new governor told the media after assuming the office.
