Oommen Chandy resigns as Kerala CM

Thiruvananthapuram: Oommen Chandy on Friday stepped down as the chief minister of Kerala after Congress’ poor show in the Assembly Elections 2016.

Chandy handed over his resignation to Kerala Governor P Sathasivam.

The CPI-M led LDF swept the assembly polls by securing 91 seats in the 140 member Kerala Assembly after the votes was counted on Thursday.

He issued a statement on his Facebook page where he thanked the people for the help and support that he and his government got since he came to power in May 2011.

"We will never blame the people. We failed to reach the people with our achievements. I now wish the new government all the best and expect that all the development projects that they started and which has reached its last stage be quickly completed," Chandy added.
