Amarinder Singh, under pressure from the Congress, resigned as Punjab Chief Minister this afternoon. He met the state Governor at the Raj Bhawan and handed over his resignation. Captain Amarinder Singh said that he felt humiliated and the Congress is free to “appoint whoever they trust”. He added that he would “exercise his options when the time comes”.

The Chief Minister has called a news conference, where he is expected to make the official announcement. Sources close to Amarinder Singh said he would “live to fight another day”.
