Purohit was given the charge of Meghalaya soon after President Pranab Mukherjee accepted Shanmuganathan’s resignation letter.

Shanmuganathan was forced to resign after a section of the employees of the Raj Bhavan had lodged a complaint with the Prime Minister and the President for his alleged role in turning the Raj Bhavan into a “young ladies club” and “seriously compromising” the dignity of the gubernatorial office.

He was also the governor of Arunachal Pradesh and was replaced today by Nagaland Governor Padmanabha Balakrishna Acharya.
