Delhi Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal resigns

New Delhi, 18/5: Anil Baijal, who shared a rocky relationship with Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, has resigned as Delhi Lieutenant Governor citing personal reasons after having served a long tenure of five years and four months.



Sources said 75-year-old Baijal, a former Union Home Secretary who was linked to influential right-wing think-tank Vivekananda International Foundation (VIF), sent his letter to President Ram Nath Kovind.


Baijal, who had frequent run-ins with Kejriwal and his government, had succeeded Najeeb Jung in December 2016, who had resigned then to devote time to academics.
