NCP group leader in the Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC) Hanumant Jagdale resigned from the post on Thursday, citing concentration of power in a "single person".
However, Jagdale will continue as a corporator of the party.
Addressing a news conference here, Jagdale said he has sent his three-page resignation letter to Maharashtra NCP president Jayant Patil.
"It has been a tradition in the NCP that corporators of the party are taken into confidence before any decision is taken in the civic body.
"However, since the last two years such a procedure has been done away within the NCP and decisions are taken by a single person and other party leaders are not at all consulted," Jagdale said, giving reasons for his resignation.
Jagdale, however, did not identify the "single person" he was referring to.
His resignation came the day when NCP Lok Sabha MP Supriya Sule's Jana Samwad Yatra' entered the city.
Sule, the Lok Sabha from Baramati and daughter of NCP chief Sharad Pawar, has embarked on the mass contact programme ahead of the assembly polls in the state.
