According to the rules, if the President referred the matter to the Supreme Court and if the court gave its nod, justice Ganguly would have stood removed from office. West Bengal governor MK Narayanan has forwarded his letter of resignation to the chief secretary. In the letter he stated it had become impossible to continue working with dignity and honour.
“The purported recommendation to the Hon’ble President for my removal, are based on grounds, which, in my opinion, are untenable and misconceived,” he wrote in his letter.
“I would like to affirmatively say that allegations which are appearing against me in the media are unfounded and baseless and I deny the same.”
Meanwhile, following his resignation, the Delhi police have said they will not seek a written complaint from the former law intern who had accused him of sexual harassment.
