Dr. M.M. Thomas
(From 09-05-1990 to 12-04-1992)
Dr. M.M. Thomas, a devout Christian, took over the reigns of Raj Bhavan on May 9, 1990. He was a very simple and humble man, easily approachable and was a theologian of world repute. His background of study and research in areas of religion, society, culture and ethics for many years, provided the right setting for him to be regarded as the first Philosopher – Statesman Governor in North East India. His addresses delivered on various occasions as the Governor, contained rare insight into a hitherto unknown aspect of life. His tenure was marked by floor crossings in the Assembly, leading to frequent changes of Governments.
