Mumbai :New trouble has arisen in front of the Governor and former Chief Minister of Uttarakhand Bhagat Singh Koshyari, who was engulfed in the letter dispute over the opening of the temple in Maharashtra. Contempt of court notice has been issued against Maharashtra Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari. On Tuesday, the Uttarakhand High Court issued this notice asking Koshyari to file a reply within 4 weeks.
