UP Congress Chief Raj Babbar sends his resignation to Rahul Gandhi after the disastrous Lok Sabha performance

Raj Babbar lost the Fatehpur Sikri Lok Sabha constituency to Rajkumar Chahar of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) by a huge margin of 4,95,065 votes.

The high octane and much hyped Lok Sabha elections are finally over. Prime Minister Narendra Modi led the BJP to a stunning and historic victory in the Lok Sabha battle with the ruling party alone securing over 300 seats while Congress faces a major embarrassment as it secures a total of 52 seats.

Results for Uttar Pradesh, the state with the largest number of constituencies in India was no different. While BJP bagged 62 out of the total of 80 seats, Congress managed a secure just one seat. Despite making tall claims, the SP-BSP mahagathbandan could also not make a mark as it together managed merely 14 seats out of the eighty.

Taking moral responsibility for the debacle, Uttar Pradesh Congress chief Raj Babbar last night sent in his resignation to party President Rahul Gandhi. He lost the Fatehpur Sikri Lok Sabha constituency to Rajkumar Chahar of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) by a huge margin of 4,95,065 votes.

However, this is not the first time Raj Babbar has taken such a step. After Congress’ defeat in Uttar Pradesh local body elections in 2017, Raj Babbar had offered to quit owning up for the party’s electoral rout. Though Rahul Gandhi, then the Vice-president had moved to stem the offer of resignation.

Similarly, last year after Congress’ performance in Lok Sabha bypolls to Gorakhpur and Phulpur, there had been speculations that the Uttar Pradesh Congress chief Raj Babbar would quit the party. But this again had proved to be just speculations.

However, this time too, going by his tendency, Raj Babbar once again taking full responsibility of the disconcerting performance of the Congress party in Uttar Pradesh tendered his resignation to the party chief. Now we are left to see, whether Rahul Gandhi will accept the resignation or reject the same, or realising that he too is equally responsible for the party’s predicaments, lead his party by example.
