The Chief Minister, on the recommendations made by a committee appointed to probe corruption, yesterday called for the resignation of Provincial Ministers of Education and Agriculture over corruption and fraud allegations.

Mr. Wigneswaran has asked NPC Education Minister T. Kurukularaja and Agriculture Minister P. Aingaranesan to hand over resignation letters by noon today.
