The tenure of Ramesh Yadav, the current chairman of the council, ended on Saturday.

The Samajwadi Party had met the Governor on Saturday and sought elections for the chairman’s post.

After taking oath, Kunwar Manvendra told reporters, “I was a pro-tem chairman between 2002 and 2004. It is the job of the Chairman to ensure that the rights of the members of the opposition are protected and the functioning of the government should not be obstructed. I am well aware of this responsibility.”
