Chhattisgarh Governor Shekhar Dutt resigns
cancel

Raipur: Chhattisgarh Governor Shekhar Dutt has stepped down from his post, two days after Uttar Pradesh Governor BL Joshi submitted his papers following a request by the NDA government to some of them to demit office.

"The Governor submitted his resignation papers to President Pranab Mukherjee last night in New Delhi," Secretary to Governor, Amitabh Jain told PTI Thursday.

Dutt had taken charge as the Governor in January 2010.

Union Home Secretary Anil Goswami had called some of the Governors appointed during UPA government's tenure to resign in the wake of change of government at the Centre.

While the Uttar Pradesh Governor had resigned on Tuesday, some of his counterparts in other states, who are UPA appointees, appear to have dug their heels in.

While Congress has criticised the government's move, JD (U) has called for a debate on the issue.
