Uttarakhand Chief Minister Trivendra Singh Rawat quit his position on Tuesday amid speculations of unrest within the Bharatiya Janata Party’s Uttarakhand cadre.
He met Governor Baby Rani Maurya in Dehradun to submit his resignation. It now remains to be seen if his resignation is indeed accepted.
The development comes a day after Union Home Minister Amit Shah, BJP chief JP Nadda, National General Secretary (Organisation) BL Santosh discussed political developments in the hill state.
“Bureaucracy is getting more powerful and voices of elected representatives are unheard,” said a party member from Uttarakhand.
It is learnt that the report mentioned that it will be difficult for the party to win next year’s state assembly polls with Rawat as the face of BJP.
