NEW DELHI: Gujarat governor Kamla Beniwal, who had frosty relations with Narendra Modi when he was chief minister of the state, was sent off to Mizoram on Sunday evening in a reshuffle of governors effected by the government.

87-year-old Beniwal, whose tenure ends in November and who had a running battle with the Modi government over the appointment of Lokayukta and some legislations, will take over from Vakkom Purushothaman.
Rajasthan governor Margaret Alva, who will demit office exactly in a month, will shift to Ahmedabad to take additional charge.
During her confrontation with Modi, Beniwal appointed retired Justice RA Mehta as Lokayukta in Gujarat against which the state went in appeal to the high court and later the Supreme Court which upheld it last year. However, it was another story that Justice Mehta did not take up the post and Modi's government named a new nominee.
Beniwal also sat over legislations passed by the state assembly one of which provided for 50 per cent reservation for women in local bodies.
