Mizo Zirlai Pawl’s comment has come just a day after the news of Pillai’s appointment as Governor surfaced. It may be mentioned here that President Ram Nath Kovind appointed the Kerala BJP President as the Governor of Mizoram.

Speaking on the lines of the new appointment, Congress spokesperson Lallianchhunga said that since the BJP was failing to influence the people of Mizoram, it was using Governors to enter the state through back door.

Mizoram has had as many as eight Governors since UPA-appointed Governor, Vakkom B Purushothaman’s resignation in July 2014. He was replaced by Kamla Beniwal who was sacked by the Central Government in August 2014 itself. All the Governors who were appointed since then left without completing their tenure.

Prior to Pillai’s appointment, Assam Governor Jagdish Mukhi was holding the charge of Mizoram since March 2019.
