On Friday night , Uttarakhand Chief Minister Tirath Singh Rawat resigned , less than four months after taking over, and hours after holding a press conference to talk about the achievements of his government.
Rawat reached Raj Bhawan at around 11 pm with Cabinet Colleagues and handed over his resignation to Governor Baby Rani Maurya , citing the constitutional provision requiring him to get elected to the Assembly within six months , and the unlikelihood of that.
Speaking to media persons after submitting his resignation, Rawat thanked Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Union Home Minister Amit Shah and BJP president J P Nadda for trusting him with the post. “Considering the constitutional crisis….I found it appropriate to resign” he said.
