President Pranab Mukherjee is all set to appoint former Chief Justice of India P. Sathasivam as the governor of Kerala on Tuesday. Top sources said Prime Minister Narendra Modi has cleared Justice Sathasivam’s name for the gubernatorial charge before embarking of his visit to Japan.
The file is now pending with the President, who is expected to make the appointment anytime soon. MHA sources said Mr Mukherjee is likely to clear Mr Sathasivam’s file on Tuesday when he returns from his two- day visit to Jammu.
Mr Sathasivam will become the first governor appointed by the Modi government who is not a politician nor a BJP leader. So far, only veteran BJP leaders having close association with the RSS have been appointed governors by the new government.
