Karunanidhi cabinet resigns

Conceding defeat without waiting for the final tally, Karunanidhi submitted the resignation of Council of Ministers as trends showed that the AIADMK-led front was poised for a landslide win.

Governor S S Barnala accepted the resignation of Karunanidhi and his Council of Ministers (with effect) from this afternoon, a Raj Bhavan communique said.

The Governor has requested Karunanidhi and the present Council of Ministers to function until alternative arrangements were made, it said.
