Eye-brows raised as Vohra found absent at swearing in ceremony of new Governor of JK

Early Times Report
SRINAGAR, Aug 23: Former Jammu & Kashmir Governor, Narendra Nath Vohra was not present during the oath taking ceremony of the new Governor of the state Satya Pal Malik. His absence did not go well with people especially politicians giving their own assumptions about the same.
The oath taking ceremony that was held at the Raj Bhawan here saw a gathering of around 400 persons, but the former Governor was not present during the function. He gave the function a miss thus giving a chance to the people to speculate about the same. People are attaching different strings to the same but none is able to give a clear picture.
Sources told Early Times that Vohra is not happy with the way he was shown door by the Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP) led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) government at the centre. Decision to oust him seemed to be a sudden one more so at a time when he was doing well while responding to the demands of people of Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh regions of the state.
"Vohra had not thought of that he would be unceremoniously shown the door by the people at helm in New Delhi. He was very keen to getting the things done in a time bound manner and had in fact reprimanded the officers for their lazy attitude towards the various developmental projects across the length and breadth of the state," said sources.
Sources said that assertion of Vohra regarding Article 35A of the Constitution of India did not go well with the central government. They said that the same turned out to be the main reason for the ouster of the former Governor. They said that Vohra had left the state for New Delhi as soon as he came to know that he has been ousted as the Governor of Jammu & Kashmir.
It would be in place to mention here that couple of weeks back the National General Secretary of BJP Ram Madhav had said that Jammu & Kashmir would get a new Governor by the end of this month. Madhav has also been issuing statements about the likely formation of the next government in the state.
Sources said that Vohra had expressed his wish to demit his office two years back but at that time the central government had asked him to carry on for some time. He completed his 10 years as the Governor of Jammu & Kashmir on June 25, 2018, but was exited unceremoniously on August 21, 2018.
President Ram Nath Kovind issued the order for the appointment of Malik as the new Governor of Jammu & Kashmir on August 21 (Tuesday). Along with Vohra, Governors of seven states of the country were changed by virtue of the same order.
