Ravi Shankar Prasad, 66, is a Lok Sabha MP from Patna Sahib. He was looking after the Law Ministry in the Modi government.
There is speculation that Ravi Shankar Prasad, who was dropped from the Modi cabinet, will be made the governor of Tamil Nadu. Local media has informed that it has been decided to make Ravi Shankar Prasad as the Governor of Tamil Nadu and its formal announcement is yet to be made.
However, so far nothing has been said on this from the organization or the government. At the same time, no such information has been received from Prasad’s side. Banwarilal Purohit is currently the governor of Tamil Nadu.
Discussion to bring in organization
The discussion of giving a big post in the organization to Ravi Shankar Prasad and Prakash Javadekar, the big faces removed from the Modi cabinet, is already in full swing. In such a situation, after the meeting of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP President JP Nadda with the party general secretary on Sunday, there is talk of appointment of Ravi Shankar Prasad as the Governor of Tamil Nadu.
However, party sources claim that Ravi Shankar Prasad and Prakash Javadekar can be made national general secretaries or vice-presidents in the organization before the assembly elections in 5 states including Uttar Pradesh next year.
Let us inform that in the recent reshuffle in the Union Cabinet, the party’s national general secretary Bhupendra Yadav has been included. In such a situation, a strong and experienced leader can be given place in his place. Ravi Shankar Prasad and Prakash Javadekar have played a big role in the party organization in the past as well.
..so there will be second governor after Gehlot
If Ravi Shankar Prasad is made the governor of Tamil Nadu, he will be the second leader after Thaawarchand Gehlot to hold the responsibility of governor. Gehlot was made the Governor of Karnataka soon after his resignation from the cabinet. According to information received from party sources, it has been decided to give important responsibility to Prasad and Javadekar.
