Aizawl: Mizoram governor Kummanam Rajasekharan on Friday resigned from his post, nine months after he was appointed in May last year. As per reports, President Ram Nath Kovind has accepted his resignation.
Rajasekharan’s resignation comes in the wake of the BJP’s Kerala unit asking the party leadership to recall him and make him contest against sitting Congress MP Shashi Tharoor in the Thiruvananthapuram Lok Sabha seat.
According to an official communique from the President’s office, Assam governor Jagdish Mukhi has been given additional charge of the Mizoram, “in addition to his own duties, until regular arrangements for the office of the Governor of Mizoram is made”.
