Aizwal :  West Bengal governor Keshari Nath Tripathi, who has been given the additional charge of Mizoram, would be sworn-in here on April four.

State Protocol Officer David L. Pachuau told PTI that a ceremonial reception would be accorded to Tripathi after he arrives at Lengpui Airport near Aizawl on April four and he would be sworn-in at the Raj Bhavan at 4 PM on that day.

Former state governor Aziz Qureshi, who was sacked by the Centre on Saturday last, would leave Aizawl on the same day, he said.

Meanwhile, Mizo Zirlai Pawl (MZP), the apex Mizo student body, in a statement said that they will stage a demonstration in front of the  Raj Bhavan on the day Tripathi is sworn-in, in protest against what they termed as, "the Centre using Mizoram as gubernatorial dumping ground".

The MZP also intends to stage a protest demonstration on the same issue when President Pranab Mukherjee visits the state on April nine to attend the convocation of the Mizoram University.
