Uttarakhand Chief Minister Tirath Singh Rawat resigned from his CM post

NEW DELHI: Uttarakhand Chief Minister Tirath Singh Rawat submitted his resignation to Governor BB Rani Morea on Friday evening, nearly four months after assuming the top post in the state. His resignation comes in the wake of uncertainty about the Election Commission’s announcement of opinion polls in the state ahead of next year’s House of Representatives elections.

BJP MP Tirath Singh Rawat has to be elected as MLA within six months of assuming office to continue his term. The BJP’s central leadership on Wednesday remembered Rawat, who had replaced Trivendra Singh as the CM in March this year, in the national capital. This led to speculations that he might be asked to step down.
