Chandigarh, October 5: Former Haryana Congress chief Ashok Tanwar on Saturday resigned from party.

The Congress on Friday had issued a stern warning to rebel leaders Ashok Tanwar and Sanjay Nirupam to restrain themselves or be ready for a future action.

Tanwar and Nirupam, both former chiefs of Haryana and Mumbai party units, respectively, have cast aspersions on the ticket distribution process and declared non-cooperation in campaigns.

Tanwar on Thursday resigned from all election committees and in his letter to Congress president Sonia Gandhi alleged sale of tickets in the state. Nirupam today alleged that leaders of Sonia Gandhi’s coterie are out to sideline former party chief Rahul Gandhi’s team members.
