S.M. Krishna quits as Governor

Special Correspondent

NEW DELHI: Maharashtra Governor S.M. Krishna has resigned, sources in the government said here on Wednesday night. Mr. Krishna has sent in his resignation to President Pratibha Devisingh Patil.

The sources said Gujarat Governor Naval Kishore Sharma was likely to be given temporary charge of Maharashtra until a regular appointment to the Mumbai Raj Bhavan was made.

Mr. Krishna, a former Chief Minister of Karnataka, is believed to be keen on returning to active politics as the Assembly elections in that State are scheduled to be held within couple of months. The Congress high command is learnt to have bowed to his wishes.

Another former Governor Sushil Kumar Shinde had also quit as Andhra Pradesh Governor to return to Central politics. He is now Union Power Minister.
