Kaptan Singh SolankiChandigarh: Former college professor and BJP leader from Madhya Pradesh Kaptan Singh Solanki will be sworn in as Haryana governor on Sunday, officials said here Saturday.

Solanki, 75, a Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Rajya Sabha member from Madhya Pradesh, replaces Jagannath Pahadia whose five year term ended Saturday.

The governor-designate will have to straight away deal with a controversy over the enactment of a law in Haryana for the creation of the Haryana Sikh Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (HSGPC) to manage gurdwaras (Sikh shrines) in the state.
