New Delhi October 31:

Maharashtra Chief Minister Ashok Chavan offered to resign from the post after a meeting with Congress President Sonia Gandhi, becoming the first political casualty to the embarrassing housing scam in Mumbai.

"I offer my resignation to you. I leave it to you take a final view on this," he told reporters about what he told Gandhi after more than an hour-long meeting with her at her 10, Janpath residence here. 51-year-old Chavan, son of late Union Home Minister and former Chief Minister S B Chavan, became chief minister on December 8, 2008 after Vilasrao Deshmukh made his way out in the wake of 26/11 terror attack in Mumbai.
