Jagdeep Dhankar’s Successor: CV Ananda Bose Appointed West Bengal Governor

New Delhi: Dr CV Ananda Bose has been appointed as the Governor of West Bengal.

“The President of India is pleased to appoint Dr C V Ananda Bose as regular Governor of West Bengal. The above appointment will take effect from the date he assumes charge of his office,” a communique from Rashtrapati Bhavan stated on Thursday.

An IAS officer of 1971 batch, Ananda Bose told ABP Ananda that he has an ‘emotional bonding’ with Bengal.

“My career as a banker started in Kolkata when I joined as probationary officer,” he said.
