Patna: Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Kumar Modi and a number of senior NDA leaders and bureaucrats gave warm welcome to the newly-appointed Governor of Bihar Satya Pal Malik at the Patna Airport on Tuesday.

Governor Malik is scheduled to be sworn in on Wednesday.

Welcoming the Governor, the Chief Minister introduced him to his cabinet members and said that he was looking forward to work with him to make Bihar a better and progressive state.

Malik replaces acting Governor and the Governor of West Bengal Keshari Nath Tripathi who was put in place following the resignation of Ram Nath Kovind who then became the President of India as an NDA candidate.

Born on December 25, 1952 in Aligarh, Malik has been a Rajya Sabha MP twice and Lok Sabha MP once. He was also a member of the UP Assembly between 1974 and 1977.
