It is not only executive but legislative (read governor) and judiciary facing attrition in Himachal Pradesh which was otherwise a phenomenon affecting corporate and private sectors.

In a short span of just two years that is between 2018 and 2019, the state had three governors, three chief justices and three chief secretaries.

Acharya Devvrat, Kalraj Mishra and Bandaru Dattatreya are the last three governors of which Kalraj Mishra had just three months’ stint before being sent to Rajasthan to replace Kalyan Singh. Even Kalyan Singh had a small stint before Acharya Devvrat as additional responsibility.

Justice Surya Kant was the chief justice of Himachal Pradesh High Court till May 2019 while he was succeeded by Justice V Ramasubramanian who was chief justice of the state till September 2019. Justice Dharam Chand Chaudhary is now the acting chief justice of the state which means he will be replaced very soon.

Now talking about chief secretary, Srikant Badli is the new chief secretary who had succeeded B K Agarwal while Vineet Chaudhary was chief secretary till September 2018. Though not uncertainty but frequent changes in the state over these three estates of democracy are mentioned often by the stakeholders in state administration.
