Congress veteran Amarinder Singh on Saturday resigned as the chief minister of Punjab, capping months of a power tussle that had polarised the ruling party in the state headed for elections in just about four months.

"I feel humiliated," Singh told reporters outside the Punjab Raj Bhawan after submitting his resignation to Governor Banwarilal Purohit.

"I have resigned, let them make anyone (next CM)," he further said.

He submitted his resignation along with that of his council of ministers, his media adviser said.

Singh's resignation came just ahead of a crucial meeting of the Congress Legislature Party on Saturday evening.
