Congress is currently reeling under a crisis as its leaders across the country are tendering their resignation from the official positions they have held in the party. The precipitous response from office bearers of various Congress affiliates such as Youth Congress, Mahila Congress, AICC and PCC comes days after Congress President Rahul Gandhi expressed his angst over Congress leaders being nonchalant with the poll rout and not owning up the responsibility of the loss.
After Rajasthan Co-Incharge and AICC secretary, Tarun Kumar and Congress leader Nana Patole tendered their resignation today, another fresh wave of Congress leaders have submitted their resignation from the positions they held. Now, the UP Congress senior vice president Ranjit Singh Jude, general secretary Aradhna Mishra Mona and vice president RP Tripathi along with 10 other leaders have resigned from the party taking moral responsibility for party’s defeat in Lok Sabha.

Yesterday, a mass resignation letter was doing the rounds on the Internet in which about 140 Congress office bearers had signed the resignation letter which read- “I would like to immediately resign from my post in respect and honour of Rahul Gandhi.” Rahul Gandhi had earlier offered to resign from his post of Congress president taking moral responsibility of the poll debacle. The CWC had unanimously rejected his resignation, however, the Congress president has been insistent on resigning from his position.
