PM Manmohan Singh to resign today
Outgoing Prime Minister Manmohan Singh will demit office on Saturday.
He will submit his resignation to President Pranab Mukherjee at around 12.45 pm.
Before submitting his resignation Singh will chair a customary meeting of the Union Cabinet where Union Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde will move a resolution for the dissolution of the 15th Lok Sabha.
Later in the evening, Singh will host tea for the members of his Council of Ministers.
The President will also host a dinner for him on Saturday.
After vacating his official residence at 7, Race Course Road, Singh will soon move into a bungalow at 3, Motilal Nehru Road.
Decimating the ruling Congress in a landslide victory, Narendra Modi led the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) to win 285 seats out of 543 that made it the first party to cross the majority mark of 272 on its own in over 30 years.
Riding on an unprecedented wave of expectations coupled with widespread resentment against the ruling Congress-led United Progressive Alliance (UPA), Modi almost singled-handedly bought the BJP-led National Deocratic Alliance (NDA) to a 340-seat-tally.
Sonia and Rahul Gandhi-led Congress party meanwhile was routed to just 43 seats, a huge 162 seats short of last time, ending Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's tenure with a humiliating blow.
