Raj Bhavan Madhya Pradesh : Advisors During President's Rule

President's Rule in madhya pradesh : advisors





In the normal course, the Chief Minister is the head of the State Government machinery. He/she is assisted in performing his duties by the council of ministers. Once the ministry is dissolved and President's Rule is imposed, the Governor appoints "advisors" to assist him/her in the discharge of the constitutional obligations. Thus, the advisors' role is similar to the council of ministers of the Chief Minister of the state.

The details of the advisors appointed during President's Rule in Madhya Pradesh on different occasions are as follows :
