New Delhi ,


In a sudden move, Delhi Lt Governor Shri Najeeb Jung on Thursday resigned amid a protracted bitter confrontation with the AAP government.
Without citing reasons, Jung's office said he has submitted his resignation to the Centre. 65-year-old Jung, a former IAS officer, had assumed charge of Lt Governor of Delhi on July 9, 2013. 
"Lt Governor Shri Najeeb Jung has submitted his resignation to the Government of India. He thanks the Prime Minister for all the help and cooperation he received during his tenure," the LG's office said in a statement.
