WB guv hasn't resigned

West Bengal Governor M K Narayanan on Thursday said he has not put in his papers, in an attempt to put  speculations to rest over his exit after the Centre reportedly sought resignation of governors appointed by the UPA regime.

“I have not yet resigned,” Narayanan told reporters on the sidelines of an event on  Wednesday evening. He, however, did not confirm receiving any official communication from the Union Home Ministry. He also did not want to comment on media reports that the Centre has asked a number of Governors, appointed by the UPA, to resign.

Asked whether he was thinking of putting in his papers, he said, “I am not obliged to say what I am going to do. I will let you know when I take any decision.” Although nothing has been officially disclosed, it is speculated that Narayanan, who is one of the Governors asked to resign, will soon resign.

He remained silent on the resignation of B L Joshi, the Governor of Uttar Pradesh and the decision of Rajasthan Governor Margaret Alva to protest against the move.
