Meghalaya has been abuzz with talk about the resignation of its governor V Shanmuganathan (also a Rashtriya Swayamsevak pracharak).Meghalaya has of late seen sex scandals in quick succession.When accused of inviting female job candidates to his residence and making physical advances, Shanmuganathan said on Tuesday: “I wanted to meet them before finalising the candidates”. This shows that he does not trust any staff of the Raj Bhavan who have been working for years with the former Governors and never such thing has ever happened in Raj Bhavan in the past.The 11-point letter stated: “He has seriously compromised the dignity of the Raj Bhawan and unfortunately made the Raj Bhawan into the “Young Ladies Club”. In fact ladies were with him even during Republic Day celebration. A party office-bearer told this newspaper that they are also looking into reports whether the Governor was targeted because of his tough stand against conversion.After many reports of inappropriate behavior by the state governor, many women activist organizations such as Civil Society Women Organisation (CSWO) and Thma u Rangli (TUR) ran a signature campaign for the removal of Shanmuganathan.
