Thiruvananthapuram: Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan who led theruling CPI(M)-headed LDF in Kerala to a resounding victory in the April 6 Assembly polls, on Monday resigned from the post, ahead of the new ministry formation.

Vijayan has been asked to continue as chief minister till the new government is sworn in,Raj Bhavan source said.

Scripting history, the LDF retained power in Kerala, bucking the over four decade-long trend of oscillating between Communist and Congress-led fronts alternately.
