New Delhi, June 18:In the wake of the Governors of various states being asked to resign, and Uttar Pradesh Governor BL Joshi following the instructions, home minister Rajnath Singh said,"If I was in their place, I would have quit too."

Rumors are rife that BJP is trying to oust the governors who have been elected by the UPA 2 government to provide safe position for their leaders as governors.

Meanwhile, Congress today has called the move a "political vendetta" and "dictatorial", which will have a serious repurcussion in the future.

Leader of the opposition in the Rajya Sabha and the Governor of New Delhi Ghulam Nabi Azad reminded the government about the 2010 judgement by the Supreme Court, which said that the Centre does not have the brief to remove the Governors "in arbitrary and capricious manner with the change of power".

He further lamented that the NDA government, instead of fulfilling its electoral promises, is trying to divert the attention of the nation by indulging in "political vendetta".
