He sent a seven-page resignation letter to party president Sonia Gandhi, sources said.
Singh had quit as the Punjab chief minister in September amid a bitter power tussle with state Congress chief Navjot Sidhu.

He has indicated that he will float a political party ahead of Assembly polls in Punjab.
