Aizawl, May 26 : Former Arunachal Pradesh Governor Lt.Gen (retd) Nirbhay Sharma arrived in Aizawl on Monday, a day before he is scheduled to be sworn in as the state’s eighth Governor in ten months. Sharma was greeted at the airport by officials led by Mizoram Chief Minister Lal Thanhawla. He arrived with his wife, daughter and mother-in-law.
The frequent changes in the incumbents of the Raj Bhjavan at Aizawl has caused many controversy in Mizoram, with political and student leaders condemning the state being used as a “dumping ground” of UPA-appointed Governors the BJP-led government wants to sideline or force out of office.

When President Mukherjee visited the state in April, he was greeted by students sporting posters protesting the frequent changes and were seen draped in traditional shawls of mourning.
