Crisis in Congress: After 140 office bearers, AICC secretary and Rajasthan co-incharge Tarun Kumar resigns

Rahul Gandhi had already expressed his anguish for the dismal performance of the party, particularly in the state of Rajasthan.

In what appears as a deep crisis for the Congress party, the resignations from party office bearers and functionaries continue to pour in after their poll rout in the Lok Sabha elections last month. After almost 140 Congress office bearers resign en masse yesterday, today AICC Secretary and Rajasthan Co-Incharge Tarun Kumar submitted his resignation to Congress President Rahul Gandhi.

Rahul Gandhi had already expressed his anguish for the dismal performance of the party, particularly in the state of Rajasthan. Congress couldn’t manage to win even 1 seat out of the 25 Lok Sabha seats from the state. Rahul Gandhi had expressed his displeasure with Rajasthan CM Ashok Gehlot for putting up a miserable show in the Lok Sabha elections.

Gehlot, on the other hand, laid the blame on Deputy CM Sachin Pilot for the electoral rout in the state and asserted that Pilot should take responsibility of the defeat as he was election in-charge of the state. The two factions in the Congress were at loggerheads with each other, each blaming the other one for the humiliating defeat.

Another Congress leader Nana Patole assumed to be close to Rahul Gandhi had resigned from his post. Patole offered his resignation owning up the responsibility of the loss.

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.” Recently, Congress president Rahul Gandhi had expressed his displeasure that no other Congress leaders were ready to take the responsibility of the Lok Sabha poll debacle.
