CM Tirath Singh Rawat tenders resignation

Dehradun, July 03 (ANI): Uttarakhand Chief Minister Tirath Singh Rawat who had sworn in as the state’s head representative 4 months ago tendered his resignation to Governor Baby Rani Maurya on June 2. His resignation comes in the wake of uncertainty over the Election Commission announcing bypolls in the state ahead of the assembly elections, which are due next year. He assumed the office of the Chief Minister on March 10, 2021 after Trivendra Singh Rawat fell out of favour from the Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP) high command in Delhi. CM Rawat said, “I have submitted my resignation to Governor. Given the constitutional crisis, I felt it was right for me to resign. I am thankful to central leadership and PM Modi for every opportunity they have given to me so far.”
