 Assam Gov to hold charge of Nagaland

In a surprise development, Governor of Nagaland and Government of India’s Interlocutor for Naga talks, R.N. Ravi has been appointed as Governor of Tamil Nadu.

According to Rashtrapati Bhavan communiqué, President of India Ram Nath Kovind appointed Assam governor, Prof. Jagdish Mukhi to hold additional charge of Nagaland, until regular arrangements are made. Ravi, a 1976 batch IPS officer from Kerala cadre, retired as special director of the Intelligence Bureau in 2012. He was also made the chairman of the Joint Intelligence Committee in 2014. 

He was appointed as the Interlocutor after the Modi government took over in 2014 and within a year signed the Framework Agreement on August 3,2015 on behalf of the government of India with the NSCN (I-M). Then on November 17, 2017 Ravi also signed the ‘Agreed Position’ signed with WC, NNPGs. Ravi was also appointed as Deputy National Security Advisor on October 5, 2018. Ravi was deputed to Nagaland and sworn-in as the state’s 19th governor on August 1, 2019. 

Ravi’s appointment as Governor of Nagaland raised hopes for an early solution to the Naga political issue. However, the much expected solution to the Naga political issue has been delayed owing to various reasons. Meanwhile, the President accepted the resignation of Baby Rani Maurya as Governor of Uttarakhand.

The President also appointed Tamil Nadu governor Banwarilal Purohit, who was holding additional charge of Punjab, as regular Governor of Punjab. Further, Lt. Gen. Gurmit Singh (Retd.) has been appointed as Governor of Uttarakhand. The appointments will take effect from the dates they assume charge of their respective offices, Rashtrapati Bhavan communiqué stated.
