The 2019 verdict is out and Rahul Gandhi led Congress party has been handed a humiliating defeat by the people of India. PM Modi led BJP managed to bag a whopping 303 seats, and winning with an even larger mandate than 2014. Rahul Gandhi, despite his loud rhetoric on the concocted Rafale scam and yelling ‘Chowkidar Chor Hai’ slogans managed to bag only 52 seats.
After a massive defeat like this, one would imagine that the Congress party would understand the underlying message in the mandate and make some changes. However, the Congress Working Committee has “unanimously” decided that Rahul Gandhi will not take any responsibility for the humiliating defeat.
Now, Youth Congress workers have gone a step ahead in their dynasty worship. They have reportedly written letters in their own blood, urging Rahul Gandhi not to quit as the Party president, as he had, decided to do earlier, a decision that was rejected by CWC.

In the letter, they have not only urged Rahul Gandhi not to quit as the party president, but also explained how they can supposedly create a space for the Congress party among the people.
The Congress party has refused to mend its ways and stuck to the Gandhi bhakti despite the loss.
Priyanka Gandhi Vadra had recently blamed the loss on other Congress leaders saying that the party lost because the leaders did not chant ‘chowkidaar chor hai’ along with Rahul Gandhi.
Rahul Gandhi, on his part, other than the drama of resignation, has asserted that there were other leaders of the party who put their sons above the party and hence, the party lost. Interestingly, the irony of this statement was lost on Rahul Gandhi.
Recently, Congress workers from Amethi had written a letter to the Election Commission in blood, urging the institution to take action against PM Modi for his ‘Bhrashtachari remark’.
