Facing a rout in the assembly polls with his bitter political foe AIADMK chief Jayalalithaa 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, Karunanidhi submitted the resignation of the '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 ministers (with effect) from this afternoon, a Raj Bhavan communique said.

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