Ahead of Uttar Pradesh assembly elections, former Union minister RPN Singh has tendered his resignation to Congress president Sonia Gandhi from the party's primary membership.  Singh shared his resignation letter on social media.

"I hereby tender my resignation from the primary membership of the Indian National Congress with immediate effect," the letter stated. "I thank you for providing me an opportunity to serve the nation, its people and the party."
