Girish Chandra Murmu appointed J&K Lt Guv; Satya Pal Malik given Goa charge

New Delhi, October 25: With a week left for bifurcation of J&K into two Union Territories, Jammu and Kashmir Governor Satya Pal Malik has been transferred and appointed as Goa Governor. Girish Chandra Murmu will be the new Lieutenant Governor of Jammu and Kashmir. Meanwhile, Radha Krishna Mathur has been appointed as Lieutenant Governor of Ladakh.

The move comes at least three months after the Centre scrapped special status of Jammu and Kashmir under Article 370 and also divided the state into two Union Territories – Jammu and Kashmir, and Ladakh.

On Tuesday, Malik said the post of Governor was weak and even had no power to conduct press conferences. “Governor is a very weak office… a poor fellow who has no power to address a press conference or speak openly,” Malik had said.
