After remaining as a minister without portfolio for months following his arrest by the ED, V Senthil Balaji has quit the MK Stalin-led state Cabinet.


A Raj Bhavan release said Governor RN Ravi, who had earlier opposed the continuance of Balaji in the Cabinet, has accepted Stalin’s recommendation in this connection.

Based on a letter from the CM dated February 12, recommending acceptance of the resignation of the jailed DMK leader, the “Governor has approved the recommendation and accepted the resignation of Thiru V Senthil Balaji, Minister, from the Council of Ministers,” the release said.
