Leader of the Opposition leaves the venue alleging protocol violation
Senayangba Chubatoshi Jamir, former Nagaland Chief Minister and former Governor of Maharashtra, Gujarat, and Goa, sworn in as Governor of the State on Thursday.
Mr. Jamir was administered the oath of office by High Court Chief Justice C. Nagappan at a ceremony held at Raj Bhavan here. Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik and other dignitaries were present.
Expressing satisfaction over his new appointment, Mr. Jamir said he had come with a mission to be a part and parcel of the State and serve the people.
“I shall be available to all people at all times,” Mr. Jamir told presspersons after the swearing-in ceremony.
The 82-year-old former Congress leader, who was Chief Minister of Nagaland for five times, succeeded Murlidhar Chandrakant Bhandare.
Leader of Opposition Bhupinder Singh, however, left the ceremony alleging violation of protocol.
He left the venue in a huff expressing unhappiness over seating arrangement and alleging non-compliance of protocol.
Parliamentary Affairs Minister Kalpataru Das, however, told journalists that no irregularity was committed in the process.
