Bihar Guv SP Malik appointed new JK Governor

#FIRST POLITICAL APPOINTMENT AFTER KARAN SINGH

22/08/2018
NEW DELHI, Aug 21: Bihar Governor Satya Pal Malik was today shifted to militancy-hit Jammu and Kashmir in a gubernatorial reshuffle that marked the end of over a 10-year tenure of N N Vohra and also the appointment of a politician to the crucial post in more than five decades. The announcement of the appointment of Malik, 72, in a Rashtrapati Bhavan communique appeared to indicate a change in the Kashmir strategy of the Modi government. The Centre had chosen since 1967 retired civil servants, diplomats, police officers and Army generals for the post of Governor of J&K. J&K is currently under Governor's rule after the BJP pulled out of the ruling coalition with the PDP in June this year. President Ram Nath Kovind also appointed Lal Ji Tandon, a BJP stalwart from Uttar Pradesh and a close confidant of late former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee, Satyadev Narayan Arya and Baby Rani Maurya as governors of Bihar, Haryana and Uttarakhand respectively, according to the Rashtrapati Bha...
