Ashok Tanwar said that cycle yatras will be taken out in all the parliamentary constituencies of Delhi from November 30 to December 6.
Tanwar's supporters were of the view that he and Abhay Chautala, seeking re-election from Ellenabad seat in Sirsa district, have the same objective of stopping the BJP from returning to power.
Ashok Tanwar announced his resignation on Twitter and posted a four-page letter addressed to Congress president Sonia Gandhi.
The chief minister said it is not the first time that accusations of corruption in ticket distribution in the Congress have been made.
Tanwar said that Congress is going through existential crises, not because of its political opponents but because of serious internal contradiction.
Cricketer-turned-politician Navjot Singh Sidhu, who was among the party's top campaigners in the last Lok Sabha polls, has been kept out.
Both the leaders have worked at preeminent positions in the party and need to introspect that if their actions are helping those that have harmed the nation, he asserted.

In his letter to Congress president, Tanwar said he was stepping down from various committees formed by her for the Haryana assembly elections but would continue to work to strengthen the party.
Ex Haryana Congress chief Ashok Tanwar targeted Ex-CM Bhupinder Singh Hooda and alleged that ticket of Sohna constituency has been sold for Rs 5 crore.
On Tanwar skipping the party meeting, Kumari Selja said the party’s focus is on the elections and Central Election Committee will meet September 30 to finalise candidates.
Sources said the party high command is understood to have decided to replace Tanwar, who was appointed as state party chief in February 2014.
He has not been successful so far as Tanwar is close to former Congress chief Rahul Gandhi.
In his resignation letter, Jai Tirath Dahiya, however, did not broach upon the issue of his differences with Ashok Tanwar and only mentioned that he would like to resign from his seat.
