Governors for six states soon


Congress chief Sonia Gandhi met Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Friday and is understood to have discussed the issue of governors’ appointment. This was followed by a meeting of the Core Committee comprising the prime minister and other senior ministers.

A consensus on the names is yet to be reached, sources said.
The National Security Advisor (NSA) and former Director of Intelligence Bureau, M K Narayanan could be a favourite for one of the vacancies.
Besides Narayanan, other names doing the rounds include former Home minister Shivraj Patil, former HRD minister Arjun Singh and Congress leader Mohsina Kidwai . Former foreign secretary Shiv Shankar Menon has emerged as the front runner for the post of NSA.

An announcement regarding these appointments is expected before Republic Day.
