Tripathi will take over from sacked Mizoram Governor Aziz Qureshi to become the seventh governor of the north-eastern state in nine months.

Mizoram’s largest students body, the Mizo Zirlai Pawl, has pledged to organise protests, including outside Raj Bhavan during the swearing-in ceremony, to agitate the “insulting” way in which Mizoram is used as a “dumping ground” of Governors the Centre wants to “expel or wishes they resign.”
