Bhopal: Madhya Pradesh Governor Anandiben Patel has been given additional charge of Chhattisgarh by President Ram Nath Kovind on Monday following the demise of Balramji Dass Tandon, a Rashtrapati Bhavan spokesman said.

Patel will discharge the additional duties until regular arrangements for the office of governor of Chhattisgarh are made.

Tandon, who was one of the founding members of the BJP’s parent organisation Jan Sangh, died on Tuesday after suffering a heart attack. He was 90.
