Bhopal:Amid intense speculation that Madhya Pradesh Governor Ram Naresh Yadav has resigned from his post after registration of an FIR against him in the MPPEB recruitment scam, Mizoram Governor Aziz Qureshi held a closed door meeting with Yadav here today.
“Qureshi arrived at the Raj Bhawan and held a meeting with Yadav which lasted for nearly 35 minutes,” a Raj Bhawan source said.
However, what transpired between them is not yet clear.
“It was a courtesy meeting,” the source said. In a related development, it was learnt that Yadav has sought an appointment with President Pranab Mukherjee. Qureshi, who is a Bhopal resident had opposed a reported directive to resign as Uttarakhand's Governor after the BJP-led NDA government came to power at the Centre and later filed a petition in the Supreme Court on the issue.
Later, he was transferred to Mizoram as Governor. Meanwhile, despite media reports stating that Yadav has tendered his resignation, top Raj Bhawan officials maintained that he has not yet resigned.
Congress Legislature Party (CLP) members led by Leader of Opposition Satyadev Katare also held a protest before the Raj Bhawan demanding Yadav's resignation after his name figured in the FIR filed by the Special Task Force yesterday in the recruitment scam.
