Dayanidhi Maran resigns

after a Cabinet meeting and after getting hints from DMK chief M Karunanidhi.After A Raja,  Maran has becoming the second DMK minister to resign from cabinet following allegation of corruption.

Maran’s continuance in the Cabinet became untenable after the CBI in its status report on the 2G scam case on Wednesday, charged him with “forcing” a Chennai-based telecom promoter C Sivasankaran to sell his stakes in Aircel to a Malaysian firm in 2006 during his tenure as Telecom Minister in UPA-I.

The Prime Minister is believed to have had a word with DMK Parliamentary Party chief T R Baalu Thursday morning and conveyed to him that the DMK leadership should be apprised of the position that Maran cannot continue in the cabinet.

Baalu, who is in Delhi, is understood to have conveyed this to Karunanidhi who later asked Maran to put in his papers.

It was business as usual for Maran in the morning as he attended the Cabinet meeting during which he abstained himself for a brief while when the issue of licence for FM channels came up.

Maran went back home from the Cabinet meeting and returned later to give his resignation to the Prime Minister on the DMK chief’s direction.
