Baijal quits as Delhi LG

New Delhi, May 18 (UNI): Delhi Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal on Wednesday submitted resignation almost after having served a tenure of more than five years.

“LG Baijal submitted resignation to the President Ram Nath Kovind citing personal reasons,” sources said. The former bureaucrat took over as the LG of the Union Territory on December 31, 2016, following 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.
