SRINAGAR: BD Mishra, a former brigadier of the Indian Army, and present Governor of Arunachal Pradesh, has been appointed as the new Lieutenant Governor for the union territory of Ladakh.
According to reports on Saturday, Lieutenant Governor Radha Krishna Mathur quietly left his office in Leh.
After that on Sunday a communique issued by the Rashtrapati Bhavan said that the President of India has accepted the resignation of Radha Krishnan Mathur as Lt. Governor of Ladakh.
Quoting sources reports said that on Saturday, Mathur packed his bags and informed the staff that he was leaving, without citing any reason for the sudden decision.
It’s unclear if Mathur was asked to resign by the Centre, or he has chosen to leave, said the reports.
Mathur, a former defence secretary, was appointed as the first Lt Governor of Ladakh after Jammu and Kashmir was stripped of its statehood and divided into two union territories in August 2019.
