Maharashtra governor BS Koshyari set to resign? Here’s what he told PM Modi


Maharashtra Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari is likely to step down from his role shortly. The former Uttarakhand Chief Minister has reportedly conveyed his “desire to be discharged of all political responsibilities” to Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The remarks come mere days after the politician said that he was ‘unhappy’ after becoming the Governor and felt that he was not in the right place.

“I feel sad, not happy,” he had said while addressing an event of the Jain community. Koshyari said that he felt happy and in the right place only when Sannyasis or mumuksharatnas come to the Raj Bhavan.

Earlier this week, the two leaders had met as PM Modi travelled to Mumbai to inaugurate two new metro lines. Governor Koshyari also released a new Marathi edition of the book ‘Exam Warriors’ authored by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday.

Bhagat Singh Koshyari was appointed the governor of Maharashtra in September 2019 and has found himself mired in controversy on several occasions since then.
