Written by: Staff

New Delhi, Apr 18: The curtain fell on a week long drama as Minister of state for external affairs Shashi Tharoor on Sunday night handed his resignation to PM Manmohan Singh in the wake of the Indian Premier League (IPL) Kochi controversy.

The minister submitted his resignation after the high-level Congress Core Group decided that he should quit as Tharoor's explanations on the IPL controversy were not satisfactory.

The Prime Minister Manmohan Singh summoned the minister to his residence on Sunday, Apr 18 and asked him to step down.

PM has forwarded Tharoor's resignation to President.
