President of CWC Rahul Gandhi insists on resigning as Congress president even as CWC rejects his resignation

In a similar drill 5 years ago, after the 2014 poll drubbing, then party president Sonia Gandhi and vice-president Rahul Gandhi had reportedly offered to resign from the post but the CWC then had rejected their proposal.

Congress president Rahul Gandhi who led the party to a disastrous defeat in 2019 Lok Sabha elections after a historic low of 44 in 2014 Lok Sabha polls is hell-bent on resigning from the post even as the Congress Working Committee (CWC) rejected his resignation. Interestingly, the President of the Congress Working Committee is Rahul Gandhi himself.

According to the reports, Rahul Gandhi has even asked the CWC to find a suitable president for the party who can turn the fortunes of the grand old political party. PM Modi-led BJP stormed to power with winning 303 seats while the Congress was reduced to a paltry 52 seats, an insignificant improvement over its previous tally of 44 in 2014.

With speculations about Rahul Gandhi’s resignation abound, Congress leader MS Reddy has postulated an interesting suggestion to arrest the party’s continuous slide.

Citing the CWC resolution of re-structuring of the party at all levels, Reddy called upon all the CWC members and AICC office bearers, especially state in-charges to resign.
