    Solution:

    The above statement is true.
    Slaves were appointed as governors and generals by the Delhi Sultanate. For the consolidation of the Sultanate, governors and administrators were needed to look after such a vast kingdom. So, rather than appointing aristocrats and chieftains as governors, the early Sultans, especially Iltutmish, were more inclined to assign their slaves for military services. These enslaved people were called bandagan in Persian and were trained to take up some of the most important political offices in the kingdom.
