Rahul Gandhi upset that no other senior leaders offered to take responsibility of poll debacle and resign

In a similar drill 5 years ago, after the 2014 poll drubbing, then party president Sonia Gandhi and vice-president Rahul Gandhi had reportedly offered to resign from the post but the CWC then had rejected their proposal

Congress President Rahul Gandhi while speaking to youth Congress workers yesterday, expressed his unhappiness saying that he is saddened that he is the only one who resigned taking responsibility of the Lok Sabha poll debacle and that no general secretary or State President took the responsibility for the same, reports India Today.

The youth Congress workers in the meeting yesterday expressed solidarity as RaGa remained adamant on his resignation as the party President.

The month-long theatrics seems to be reaching its climax now as Rahul Gandhi during a meeting with leaders from Haryana state coordination committee on Thursday stuck to his decision to resign as Congress president, saying he did it to ensure accountability for the party’s Lok Sabha poll debacle and there was no question of going back on it.

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.”

Congress president Rahul Gandhi who led the party to a disastrous defeat in 2019 Lok Sabha elections after a historic low of 44 in 2014 Lok Sabha polls has been hell-bent on resigning from the post even as the Congress Working Committee (CWC) had rejected his resignation. Interestingly, the President of the Congress Working Committee is Rahul Gandhi himself.

Taking the farce a step ahead, after weeks of speculation regarding whether or not the Congress party will finally mend its ways and assign blame to the reluctant Dynasty who has managed to reduce the party to ashes, Randeep Surjewala had clarified to the media that Rahul Gandhi was, is and will remain the President of the Congress party.

Several other party bigwigs had jumped up in Rahul’s rescue. While, Congress MP Shashi Tharoor, had come out in support of the party president saying that Rahul Gandhi is the best person to pull the Congress out of its predicament following the setback in the Lok Sabha polls. He furthered that his party is “alive and kicking” and it is too premature to write its obituary, Senior Congress leader, Verappa Moily, also, took to Twitter to support Rahul Gandhi’s post as Congress chief.
