" It said Duggal will discharge the functions of the governor of Mizoram, in addition to his own duties, until further orders."
New Delhi, Aug 6 - Kamla Beniwal, who had a strained relationship with Narendra Modi when he was the Gujarat chief minister, was Wednesday removed as Mizoram's governor, an official statement said.

Former union home secretary Vinod Kumar Duggal, who is the governor of Manipur, will hold the additional charge of Mizoram.

A Rashtrapati Bhavan statement said the president has directed that Kamla shall cease to hold the office of the governor of Mizoram.

It said Duggal will discharge the functions of the governor of Mizoram, in addition to his own duties, until further orders.

The 87-year-old Beniwal was shifted to Mizoram July 6 by the Narendra Modi government.
