India: Ten months ahead of his term ending, Jammu and Kashmir Governor Narinder Nath Vohra is likely to resign from his post. The Indian Express, an Indian news agency reported that the development could take place as early as this week, even today.

Narinder Nath Vohra (retired) IAS  is the current and 12th Governor of the State of Jammu and Kashmir. He took over from S. K. Sinha on June 25, 2008. He is the first civilian Governor of Jammu and Kashmir in 18 years after Jagmohan.

Since February 2003 until he became the governor, Vohra had been the Indian government’s interlocutor in Kashmir. As such he had been holding wide-ranging discussions with both the elected representatives in the state and also the resistance leaders in a bid to forge a common ground for the all-round development of the state.
