Khanduri steps down as Uttarakhand CM

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Tuesday asked Uttarakhand Chief Minister B C Khanduri to resign--a move to quell mounting dissent in the state party.

 

The BJP in Uttarakhand has been in turmoil after it lost all five Lok Sabha seats in the state and dissidents led by senior leader B S Koshiyari landed in Delhi to press for Khanduri’s removal. Koshiyari even resigned his Rajya Sabha seat, but took back his letter a day later.
