In ‘respect’ and ‘honour’ of Rahul Gandhi, Congress office bearers resign en masse

Many Rahul Gandhi supporters within the party have now proffered to resign amidst his insistence on resigning from the post of Congress presidency.

A large number of Congress functionaries and office bearers have reportedly tendered mass resignations on Thursday in ‘honour’ and ‘respect’ of their president Rahul Gandhi. The signatories on the resignation include AICC- PCC chiefs, Working Presidents, Secretaries, Youth Congress leaders and Mahila Congress office bearers.

A mass resignation letter is doing the rounds on the Internet in which about 140 Congress office bearers have signed the resignation letter which read- “I would like to immediately resign from my post in respect and honour of Rahul Gandhi.”

Following a humiliating defeat in the recently concluded 17th Lok Sabha elections, in which Congress could manage to win a paltry 53 Lok Sabha seats, Congress president Rahul Gandhi owned up the responsibility of the poll debacle and offered his resignation from the post of Congress Presidency.

However, the Congress Working Committee (CWC) had unanimously rejected his resignation and exhorted him to continue as the party’s chief. But, Rahul Gandhi has reportedly been adamant on his resignation from the post and has asked party leaders to find many an appropriated candidate for the position.

Many Rahul Gandhi supporters within the party have now proffered to resign amidst his insistence on resigning from the post of Congress presidency. Congress leader Prakash Joshi said why should Rahul Gandhi alone be held responsible for the party’s poll rout and emphasised that those responsible for ‘calling the shots’ from behind should be held responsible and Rahul Gandhi be given a free rein to restructure the party.

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. Responding to the request made by the Haryana state coordination committee to reconsider the resignation, Rahul told the leaders, “I have resigned after taking full responsibility and ensuring accountability for the party’s defeat in the Lok Sabha elections. I cannot ask others to resign too. It is up to them if they want to take responsibility.”
