THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Kerala governor Arif Mohammad Khan, who has gained national attention for his frequent clashes with the Left Front government in the state, is likely to remain in office even after end of his term in September. The governor can continue for a period of five years or during the pleasure of the President and till the appointment of a new governor even after his term expires.

If there is a BJP government at the Centre again, there is a possibility that the governor will continue. 73-year-old Arif Khan had earlier tried for the post of Vice President, but the it went to Bengal Governor Jagdeep Dhankar. Khan, who joined the BJP in 2004, has close ties with the Prime Minister Narendra Modi and top BJP leaders. He has openly said that he has been an RSS man for decades. Khan took charge as the 22nd Governor of Kerala on September 6, 2019. He is a native of Bulandshahr in Uttar Pradesh.
