Centre appoints Arnab Goswami as NMML Society’s member


Centre has appointed Arnab Goswami as member of Nehru Memorial Museum and Library or NMML Society along with former Foreign Secretary S Jaishankar, BJP lawmaker Vinay Sahasrabuddhe and IGNCA chairman Ram Bahadur Rai.

These members have replaced four members who had opposed the move to build a museum for all Prime Ministers at the Teen Murti Estate.

Former union minister MJ Akbar, who resigned from the Cabinet on October 17 in the wake of #MeToo allegations of sexual harassment, is still the vice chairman of the NMML executive council.

According to a notification on October 29, the culture ministry replaced economist Nitin Desai, professor Udayan Mishra and former bureaucrat BP Singh. Another member Pratap Bhanu Mehta had resigned in 2016 over the appointment of Shakti Sinha as NMML director.

The newly appointed members will serve until April 25, 2020, the order said.
