Arunachal Pradesh governor Jyoti Prasad Rajkhowa, who refused to resign, was removed from his post after a communique from President’s Office.

The statement from the President office said:

“The President has directed that Shri J.P. Rajkhowa shall cease to hold the office of the Governor of Arunachal Pradesh and has appointed Shri V. Shanmuganathan, Governor of Meghalaya, to discharge the functions of the Governor of Arunachal Pradesh, in addition to his own duties, until regular arrangements for the office of the Governor of Arunachal Pradesh are made.”

Last week, Union home minister Rajnath Singh met President and expressed that Rajkhowa’s position had become untenable due to the Supreme Court’s observations against him.

On July 13, the Supreme Court restored the Congress government in the state and censured the Governor for ‘humiliating the elected government of the day’.

Rajkhowa, a former IAS officer from Assam, had earlier said that a union minister verbally communicated to him about the decision, which had been taken at a higher level meeting.

Rajkhowa was asked to resign on health grounds by August 30. However, he refused to do so and said that if the government wants him to quit, then let them use provisions of Article 156 of the Constitution.
