Congress presidential poll candidate Mallikarjun Kharge resigns as Rajya Sabha LoP

New Delhi/IBNS: Congress presidential poll candidate Mallikarjun Kharge resigned as the party's Leader of Opposition (LoP) in Rajya Sabha Saturday, media reports said.

Kharge, the most favourite to win the Congress presidential polls, quit following the party's 'one person, one post' policy.

Kharge along with other contestants, Shashi Tharoor and KN Tripathi, filed their nominations Friday.

In a fresh drama Friday, senior Congress leader Digvijaya Singh withdrew from the polls after 80-year-old Kharge joined the race.

Singh instead proposed Kharge's name in the polls.

Singh and former Union Finance Minister P Chidambaram are reportedly in the race to succeed Kharge, if he wins the poll, as the Congress' LoP in the upper house of Parliament.
