"I have resigned as party general secretary and from all posts I hold," he told PTI.
Hariprasad said he owns the responsibility for the party's poor performance in the panchayat polls in Odisha, where he was the in-charge.
He was also the Congress' in-charge in Chhattisgarh.
Hariprasad, however, said he is a total Congressman and will not quit the party for which he has worked for the last 43 years.
Sources said Hariprasad had been facing a revolt by several party MLAs in Odisha for the last few months.
