Since Monday afternoon, Speculations of Sushma Swaraj's appointment as the Governor of Andhra Pradesh kept doing rounds in the political circles. Even mainstream media offered extensive coverage to the report confirming that Prime Minister Narendra Modi conveyed the decision to AP CM YS Jaganmohan Reddy during his recent visit to Tirupati.

Sushma Swaraj issued a clarification that she just called on the Vice President of India Venkaiah Naidu on demitting office as Minister of External Affairs and that itself was enough for Twitter to appoint her as the Governor of Andhra Pradesh. 'The news about my appointment as Governor of Andhra Pradesh is not true,' says the Former Union Minister.

Seems like, Union Government isn't in a hurry to nominate a new Governor for Andhra Pradesh. Will Centre continue ESL Narasimhan as Joint Governor until 2024?

If she isn't interested to serve as Governor, What would Sushma Swaraj do in future? Will she retire from Politics citing her health condition?
