NEW DELHI, India: Mr. Sultan Singh, Chairman of the Kisan Wing of All India Congress (I) Committee is understood to have resigned from its post. According to informed sources, Mr. Sultan Singh resigned in protest against the poor treatment meted out to him during the period of Chairmanship of the wing. Mr. Sultan Singh is the former President of the Haryana Congress (I) and a former member of the Rajya Sabha.

Although his resignation is against the poor treatment meted out to him by the party high command he had chosen the time to resign when the elections in Haryana are around the corner. He may not command a sizeable following among the people in Haryana but the resignation will certainly boost the morale of opposition parties in the state.

Mr. Sultan Singh is understood to have written a letter to the Prime Minister expressing unhappiness over the issue.
