Facing a rout in the Assembly polls with the AIADMK storming back to power, Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M. Karunanidhi on Friday submitted the resignation of his ministry.

Conceding defeat without waiting for the final tally, Mr. 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 Mr. Karunanidhi and his Council of Ministers (with effect) from this afternoon, a Raj Bhavan communique said.

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