Centre appointed former union minister Krishnam Raju as Tamil Nadu Governor?
The news of the Central government appointing senior BJP leader and senior Tollywood actor U V Krishnam Raju as Tamil Nadu Governor is going viral on social media.

Krishnam Raju won as MP for the first time from Kakinada parliamentary constituency in 1998 and again elected as MP in 1999. He will become the second AP leader to serve as Tamil Nadu Governor after Congress leader Rosaiah if the appointment is confirmed.
