Sheila Dikshit meets president
Kerala Governor Sheila Dikshit Monday met President Pranab Mukherjee a day after her Maharashtra counterpart K. Sankaranarayanan quit following his transfer to Mizoram.
Though it was widely speculated that the meeting was meant to intimate Mukherjee about her resignation, the former chief minister of Delhi denied any such move.
Dikshit, who met Home Minister Rajnath Singh earlier Monday, refused to say if she intended to step down. She said it was her duty to call on the president.
"I always call on the president when I am in town. It is my duty to call on the president," she told reporters.
Asked if there was pressure on governors to quit, the former Delhi chief minister said: "You are answering your own questions."
Maharashtra Governor K Sankaranarayanan resigned a day earlier.
Since the Narendra Modi government took charge May 26, seven governors have resigned: B.L. Joshi (Uttar Pradesh), Shekhar Dutt (Chhattisgarh), Ashwani Kumar (Nagaland), M.K. Narayanan (West Bengal), B.V. Wanchoo (Goa), Vakkom B. Purushothaman (Mizoram) and Sankaranarayanan.
Kamla Beniwal was first shunted out from Gujarat to Mizoram and then sacked Aug 6.
