First Separate Governor of Telangana
 
Former Tamil Nadu BJP Chief Tamilisai Soundararajan was appointed as the Governor of Telangana. Soundararajan is also BJP’s national secretary. Earlier, the post of Governor in Telangana was held by E S L Narasimhan as a dual charge, as he was the Governor of Andhra Pradesh before its bifurcation.
