New Delhi: In an unanticipated move, state BJP leader P S Sreedharan Pillai was on Friday appointed as the Governor of Mizoram.
The order appointing him as the Governor of the state was communicated through a press release from the secretary to the President of India.
Sreedharan Pillai is currently the state president of BJP and his appointment comes in the backdrop of a dim show of the party in the bypolls.
Sreedharan Pillai, who hails from Alappuzha, started his political career through ABVP. He is a lawyer by profession and served various posts in BJP before becoming state president of the party in 2003 for the first time.
