New Delhi, Apr 28: Former SPG chief B V Wanchoo was on Saturday named as the new Governor of Goa while E S L Narasimhan and K Sankaranarayanan will have fresh terms as Governors of Andhra Pradesh and Maharashtra respectively.


Former Madhya Pradesh minister and ex-MP Aziz Qureshi was appointed as the next Governor of Uttarakhand replacing Margaret Alva who will move to Rajasthan as Governor for the remainder of her term, Rashtrapati Bhavan announced on Saturday night.

The appointments were cleared at the Congress Core Group meeting on Friday presided over by party president Sonia Gandhi with Prime Minister Manmohan Singh by her side.
