The north-eastern state has witnessed a virtual parade of gubernatorial appointees being sworn-in and shown the door since the Narendra Modi government came to power in May last
year, with West Bengal Governor K N Tripathi becoming the seventh Raj Bhavan occupant recently.

Mukherjee was accorded a warm reception on his arrival here this afternoon with people lining the entire 20 km stretch from Thuampui helipad to Raj Bhavan.

Mukherjee was seen happily waving at the crowds as many captured the moment on their mobile phones.

As the motorcade passed through the narrow roads of the scenic hill station that rivals Shimla and Mussoorie, some people raised placards that said 'seven Governors in nine months in not acceptable'.

Tripathi, the latest Raj Bhavan occupant, already holds additional charge of Bihar, besides being the Governor of West Bengal.
