Delhi's Lt Governor Anil Baijal resigns citing 'personal reasons'

New Delhi/IBNS/UNI: Delhi's Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal has submitted his resignation to President Ram Nath Kovind after serving a tenure of more than five years.

"LG Baijal submitted resignation to the President Ram Nath Kovind citing personal reasons," sources told UNI.

The former bureaucrat took over as the LG of the Union Territory on December 31, 2016, following the resignation of the then LG Najeeb Jung.

Baijal has been at loggerheads with Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal over several issues.

A major tussle surfaced when Kejriwal and his Cabinet colleagues held a demonstration at Baijal's office alleging officers posted with the Delhi government were not cooperating with the elected representatives of AAP.
