News about my appointment as Governor of Andhra Pradesh is not true: Sushma Swaraj

New Delhi, June 11 (IBNS): Former External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on Monday ended all speculations and said she has not been appointed as the Governor of Andhra Pradesh.

"The news about my appointment as Governor of Andhra Pradesh is not true," Swaraj tweeted.

In another tweet, she said: "I called on the Vice President of India Shri Venkaiah Naidu ji on demitting office as Minister of External affairs. This was enough for Twitter to appoint me as the Governor of Andhra Pradesh."

Sushma Swaraj had worked as the External Affairs Minister in the earlier PM Narendra Modi-led NDA government.

She decided not to contest the Lok Sabha elections this year on health grounds.

S Jaishankar, a former foreign secretary, has been appointed as the External Affairs Minister in the current government.
