Senior Congress leader P Chidambaram on Thursday resigned from his Rajya Sabha seat in Maharashtra after he was elected to the Upper House from his home state of Tamil Nadu for a fresh term.

''Following my election to the Rajya Sabha from the state of Tamil Nadu, I am required to resign my seat from the state of Maharashtra. Accordingly, today I tendered my resignation from the seat from the state of Maharashtra,'' Chidambaram said in a tweet.

''The Hon'ble Chairman of the Rajya Sabha has accepted my resignation. I was honored to represent the state of Maharashtra. I wish the people of Maharashtra the very best in the future, peace and prosperity,'' the former Union minister said.
