Patna: Senior BJP leader Satya Pal Malik was today sworn in as the Governor of Bihar at the Raj Bhavan here.

Malik was administered the oath of office by Chief Justice of the Patna High Court Justice Rajendra Menon, in presence of a host of dignitaries including Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Kumar Modi, state legislative assembly Speaker Vijay Chaudhary and legislative council Chairman Awadhesh Narain Singh.

Hailing from Baghpat district in western Uttar Pradesh, Malik is a law graduate and he began his political career in the 1970s as a member of the UP state legislative Assembly.
