New Delhi, March 30 (IANS) AIADMK's S.R. Muthukaruppan on Friday announced he will resign his membership of the Rajya Sabha over the Centre's failure to implement the Supreme Court order on setting up a Cauvery Monitoring Board (CMB).
"It is my personal decision. I am resigning as a protest against the Centre's action in not constituting the CMB. The Prime Minister is refusing to speak on the Cauvery issue. I am resigning for the people of the state," he told reporters here.
Muthukaruppan, who has still two more years in his six-year term, said he would be submitting his resignation to the Chairman of the Rajya Sabha in a couple of days.
