New Delhi: A letter of Delhi Lt Governor Najeeb Jung surfaced today in which he has written to Union Home Secretary Rajiv Mehrishi earlier this month apprising him he would be on a private visit to Goa from December 25 to January 1.

Delhi Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung today resigned from his post.

However, in a surprise move, Jung resigned today, three days before he was scheduled to go on the seven-day trip.

“I will be undertaking a private visit to Goa from December 25, 2016 to January 1, 2017. I will leave Delhi in the afternoon of Sunday, 25 December 2016, and will be back on evening of Sunday, 01 January 2017,” Jung has said in the letter written earlier this month but which carries no date.

In the letter to Union Home Secretary, Jung says that in his absence, Delhi Chief Secretary would keep in touch with him about important developments.

“Chief Secretary will keep in touch with me about important developments, and where necessary, seek your advice,” he has said.

Earlier in the day, Lt Governor Najeeb Jung resigned amid a protracted 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 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.
