Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi resigns as Minority Affairs Minister

BJP leader Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi on Wednesday resigned as the Union Minister of Minority Affairs. It is to be noted that Naqvi’s Rajya Sabha term ends on July 7 and he has not been renominated by BJP to the Upper House. The senior BJP leader’s resignation comes amid speculations of him replacing Jammu and Kashmir Lt Governor Manoj Sinha as the Election Commission is preparing to hold Assembly elections in the Union Territory before the year end.

And in light of his likelihood to get the Lt Governor’s post, the BJP had decided not to field Naqvi in the recent Rajya Sabha polls.

Along with Naqvi, another Union Minister RCP Singh has also submitted his resignation to PM Modi a day ahead of his Rajya Sabha term gets over.
