Monday resigned from the post and announced the name of senior
BJP corporator Dayashankar Tiwari as his successor for the
remaining tenure of 13 months.
Joshi tendered his resignation to Nagpur Municipal
Corporation Commissioner Radhakrishnan B.
After Nanda Jichkar completed her two-and-a-half-years
term as the mayor, the BJP had split the tenure of the
remaining 26 months between Joshi and Tiwari, sources said.
Joshi took charge as Mayor on November 19, 2019.
Addressing a press conference, Joshi thanked the BJP
for giving him the opportunity to serve the people.
"Senior BJP corporator Dayashankar Tiwari will be
taking up the responsibility of next Mayor for the remaining
13 months," he said.
Joshi recently unsuccessfully contested the Nagpur
division graduate constituency elections as a BJP nominee. He
lost to Abhijit Wanjari of the Congress. PTI CLS
