Maharashtra Governor BS Koshyari offers to step down from post

Mumbai: Maharashtra Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari has offered to step down from his post and conveyed his desire to do so to Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday.

I have always received the love and affection from the Hon’ble Prime Minister and I hope to receive the same in this regard

In a series of tweets, Governor Koshyari confirmed that during PM Modi’s recent visit to Mumbai, he conveyed his desire to be discharged of all political responsibilities and to “spend the remainder of my life in reading, writing and other activities”.

“I have always received the love and affection from the Hon’ble Prime Minister and I hope to receive the same in this regard,” he added.

PM Modi was in Mumbai on January 19 to inaugurate and lay the foundation stone for several infrastructure projects.
The Maharashtra Governor further said that it was an absolute honour and privilege for him to serve as the Rajya Sevak or Rajyapal of a “great State like Maharashtra – the land of Saints, Social reformers and valiant fighters”.

“I can never forget the love and affection I have received from the people of Maharashtra during the last little more than 3 years,” said Koshyari.

The 80-year-old was appointed the 22nd Governor of Maharashtra on September 5, 2019. He has recently come under fire over his controversial remarks about Chhatrapati Shivaji.

In November 2022, while giving a speech to students of a university, attended by NCP leader Sharad Pawar and Union Minister Nitin Gadkari, Governor Koshyari called Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj an olden days idol, sparking a row of discontent over whole Maharashtra.
