HYDERABAD: Governor ESL Narasimhan is all set to unfurl the national flag on the Republic Day and receive the guard of honour at Secunderabad Parade Grounds, though his fiveyear term as governor will technically come to an end on Wednesday.
According to official sources, though Narasimhan will be completing his five-year term, he will have the privilege to deliver the Republic Day address since Rashtrapati Bhavan has neither issued any communique replacing him nor stated that his term has ended.
Usually, when a governor is appointed, he would be in the gubernatorial posting till further orders though the term is technically for five years.
Consequently, invitations have been sent for Republic Day function stating that Narasimhan would be unfurling the national flag and receiving the salute of the R-Day parade.
Narasimhan, who was former IB chief, was appointed governor of Chhattisgarh on Jan 25, 2007.
He took over as governor of AP on Jan 22, 2010, during the height of Telangana movement following the unceremonious exit of ND Tewari
