Why was R N Ravi made the Governor of Tamil Nadu?

The move to make Nagaland Governor R N Ravi the Governor of Tamil Nadu suggests disapproval of his ways to handle the Naga peace process. For the past few years, the Naga peace process has been unsuccessful between the NSCN-IM, the lead Naga group negotiation with the Centre, and Ravi.

Naga Peace Process Accord - Background

The government has not been able to successfully finalize the Accord despite a Framework Agreement for Naga Peace Accord that was signed in 2015. NSCN-IM has been seeking the removal of Ravi so the Naga peace talks can be successful. In the past year, the Intelligence Bureau has been interacting with NSCN-IM for the Naga Peace Accord.

The relationship between NSCN-IM and Ravi deteriorated the most when in 2020, Ravi wrote to CM Neiphiu Rio citing that rampant extortion and violence in the state and alleged that armed gangs were running parallel governments.
