La. Ganesan, a senior BJP leader from Tamil Nadu, was appointed as the new governor of Manipur on Sunday.
The governorship had become vacant following the retirement of Najma Heptulla earlier this month.
According to a Rashtrapati Bhavan communiqué, Ganesan will be the new “Governor of Manipur with effect from the date he assumes charge of his office.”
Heptulla left office on August 10, and Sikkim Governor Ganga Prasad took over on the same day. PTI
