Srinagar—Speculations were rife Monday that Governor NN Vohra may resign, ten months before the end of his second term, this week.

The Central government has been looking for a replacement for several months, the Indian Express reported.

Vohra, serving his second term, took over from SK Sinha on June 25, 2008.

Reports were making rounds in July this year, that he was seeking to retire. However, the Home Ministry denied reports saying they received no such letter from the Governor’s office.

It has been known that the Centre has been scouting for a replacement for several months.

Vohra had earlier served as Union Home Secretary as well as Defence Secretary.

He also served as Kashmir interlocutor for some time. Before that he served as Principal Secretary to Prime Minister IK Gujral between 1997-98.

Vohra, 81, is also a recipient of the Padma Vibushan.
