Meghalaya Governor V Shanmuganathan resigns amid allegations of hurting prestige of Raj Bhavan

Shillong: In a major development, Meghalaya Governor V. Shanmuganathan on Thursday resigned from his post, agency sources said.

Shanmuganathan’s resignation comes amid allegations of inappropriate behaviour and hurting the decorum and prestige of the Raj Bhavan.

Earlier, the Congress demanded immediate removal of the governor for behaving in a `disgraceful` manner.

Meanwhile, employees of the Raj Bhavan, in a five-page letter to the Prime Minister`s Office (PMO), have demanded immediate removal of the governor accusing him of turning the institution into “a young ladies club.”

A job applicant has also allegedly accused the governor of “inappropriate behaviour.”

 She has alleged that the governor behaved inappropriately by hugging and kissing her.

The governor however has denied the accusations saying that they were levelled against him because some candidates were not selected.

He said the candidates were like his daughters and granddaughters.

Shanmuganathan, who took over as the Governor of Meghalaya in May last year, on Thursday attended a Republic Day celebration in Arunachal Pradesh, whose additional charge he holds since November last year following the removal of Jyoti Prashad Rajkhowa.
