Zeenews Bureau

Ahmedabad: The Gujarat government on Saturday demanded resignation of Governor Kamla Beniwal.

As per ABP News, the demand is in the wake of a Jaipur magistrate asking police to investigate forgery and land grabbing charges against her.

On November 26, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) had submitted a request to President Pranab Mukherjee's office seeking removal of Beniwal citing similar case.

The probe order is against Beniwal and her organisation- Kisan Samuhik Krushi Sahakari Samiti based in Jaipur.

Earlier this year, BJP president Nitin Gadkari had led a party delegation to the then president Pratibha Patil demanding Beniwal's removal citing another case. A Judicial Order for criminal action had been issued by an Additional Registrar, Jaipur on May 02, against Beniwal and her organisation.
