The Rajpramukh of Madhya Prant (Hindi: मध्यप्रांत के राजप्रमुख, Bengali: মধ্যপ্রান্তের রাজপ্রমুখ), literally the Grand Ruler of Madhya Prant, is the constitutional head of Madhya Prant state in Vishwamitra. The executive power of the state is vested in him as the monarch of the state. The current rajpramukh, Arnab Sil, is the first Rajpramukh of Madhya Prant and has been on throne since the establishment of the monarchy on 8 June 2020. He is the head of all religions in the state and also the head of the royal house, the House of Sil and is also the source of all titles, honours and dignities of its people. In addition, the rajpramukh is also a member of the Conference of Rulers, the body of the state rulers responsible for the election of the Rashtradhyaksh and the Uparashtradhyaksh. The rajpramukh also briefly served as the Chairman of the Conference of Rulers between June and July 2020.

History

Madhya Prant was created first as the union territory of Central Guwahati in September 2016 under the administration of the lieutenant governor when the federal units of administrations were created. The territory got its statehood on 25 February 2017. The governor was made responsible for the affairs and the administration of the state who was appointed directly by the president and remained in office at the pleasure of the appointer. In early June 2020, the Council of State headed by its chairman and former president Dhrubajyoti Roy convened the members to discuss on matters related to national importance. The council, then, acting at the suggestion of its chairman approved for the establishment of a federal elective absolute monarchy in the nation. Under the proposals, it was suggested for the establishment of provincial monarchies each headed by a Rajpramukh and all the rulers would form the Conference of Rulers which would elect the federal ruler and their deputy.

On 8 June 2020, the monarchy came into existence both at the federal level and that in Madhya Prant. Arnab Sil was installed as the first rajpramukh of the state while he appointed his younger brother Prince Saikat as the heir presumptive with the title of the Crown Prince of Madhya Prant.
