Sheila Dikshit resigns as Delhi CM

New Delhi, Dec 8: Sheila Dikshit, Delhi’s chief minister for 15 years, resigned Sunday after the Congress was routed in assembly elections, with she herself set to lose to Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Arvind Kejriwal.

Dikshit submitted her resignation to Lt. Governor Najeeb Jung as vote count showed that the Congress may not win even a dozen seats in the 70-member assembly.
