Sushma Swaraj denies reports of being appointed as Andhra Pradesh governor after minister Harsh Vardhan congratulates her for the same

Before the tweets of Sushma Swaraj, home ministry sources also had denied the reports.

Senior BJP leader and former External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj has denied rumours that she is being appointed as the governor of Andhra Pradesh. Reacting to the rumour which was being circulated on social media, Swaraj took to Twitter to inform that no such thing is happening.

In a tweet with sarcastic tone, she said that she called on Vice president Venkaiah Naidu on demitting her office, and this was enough for Twitter to appoint her as the Governor of Andhra Pradesh.

In the evening of 10th June Twitter was abuzz with reports that Sushma Swaraj appointed as the governor of Andhra Pradesh. Apart from Twitter users, few Telugu media houses and portals had speculated that she was being considered for the post of Governor of AP.

The rumour was further fuelled when union minister Harsh Vardhan congratulated Swaraj on her appointment. In the Hindi tweet, he had said that people of Andhra Pradesh will be benefited by the appointment of Sushma Swaraj as the governor of the state. Although Vardhan later deleted the tweet, news agency ANI had posted a screenshot of his tweet.

Later ANI posted another tweet informing that Harsh Vardhan has deleted his tweet congratulating Sushma Swaraj.

But all the speculations were put to end very soon by the Tweet of Sushma Swaraj. Before the tweets of Sushma Swaraj, home ministry sources also had denied the reports. The Home Ministry is the nodal authority for affairs related to Governors and Lieutenant Governors of states and Union territories.

Sushma Swaraj didn’t contest the 2019 Lok Sabha election on health grounds as she was recovering from a kidney transplant, and didn’t join the second government of Narendra Modi. It may be noted that her husband Swaraj Kaushal was the governor of Mizoram from 1990 to 1993.
