Srinagar: Jammu and Kashmir Lieutenant Governor Girish Chandra Murmu on Wednesday sent his resignation to President Ram Nath Kovind, CNN News18 reported.
Quoting sources, the report added that Murmu is set to be the next Comptroller and Auditor General of India (CAG) taking over from Rajiv Mehrishi, who will retire this week.
While reports said Murmu has sent his resignation to Kovind, there is no confirmation whether it has been received by the President and if it has been accepted or rejected.
Murmu was appointed as the first L-G of Jammu and Kashmir last October after the formation of the new Union Territory under the Jammu and Kashmir Reorganisation Act, 2019.
