Meghalaya Governor V Shanmuganathan Resigns


Meghalaya Governor V Shanmuganathan has resigned days after nearly 100 members of his staff alleged in a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi that he had "compromised the dignity" of the Governor's House and turned it into a "young ladies club".




Mr Shanmuganathan, who also has additional charge of Arunachal Pradesh, has denied the allegations. His resignation has been accepted.

Assam Governor Banwarilal Purohit has been given additional charge of the state.
