Sankaranarayanan, who has been serving as the Governor of Maharashtra since 2010, said he received two calls from the Home Ministry. “I would think about quitting the office if those at the helm of affairs demanded so. The move from the Home Department would spoil the post of the governor,’’ Sankaranarayan told a TV channel.
Sankaranarayan, a Congress leader from Kerala, was made the Governor of Maharashtra for the second time in May, 2012. Prior to that, he had served in Jharkhand and Nagaland for three years.
