New Delhi: Former Uttar Pradesh chief minister and senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Kalyan Singh is likely to be appointed as the new Governor of Rajasthan.

Sources said that the government may announce its decision in this regard today.

Earlier, Singh had expressed reservation on the appointment and said that he would like to work for the party in Uttar Pradesh.

The appointment of Rajasthan Governor was necessitated after the tenure of Margaret Alva ended on Tuesday. She was appointed Governor of Uttarakhand on August 6, 2009, and moved to Rajasthan on May 12, 2012.

On Monday, Uttar Pradesh Governor Ram Naik was given additional charge of Rajasthan in place of Margaret Alva.
