Congress’ resignation saga continues: Jyotiraditya Scindia resigns as AICC General Secretary

Rahul Gandhi had earlier expressed his angst over Congress leaders being nonchalant with the poll rout and not owning up the responsibility of the loss.

Jyotiraditya Scindia today resigned as All India Congress Committee (AICC) General Secretary taking responsibility of the poll debacle. “Accepting the people’s verdict and taking accountability, I had submitted my resignation as General Secretary of AICC to Rahul Gandhi. I thank him for entrusting me with this responsibility and for giving me the opportunity to serve our party,” he said.

Congress leaders are on a resignation spree. Indian Youth Congress Chief, Keshav Chand Yadav, too resigned on Saturday, taking “full responsibility” of the party’s defeat in the Lok Sabha elections.

In a letter addressed to Rahul Gandhi, Keshav Chand Yadav wrote, “I joined politics after being inspired by your vision for development and welfare of India. It is just because of your revolutionary step to inculcate one of the finest democratic process in Indian Youth Congress that a common man like me could make a stand in politics. Sir, as you are well aware that I toiled from being a social worker to block level party worker and presently the national president of IYC.”

He added, “But now after giving a serious thought on the current political scenario and to stand by your fight and cause, I do hereby take the full responsibility of the 2019 electoral defeat and tender my resignation from my current post. I have always been and will continue to serve the party as a dedicated and responsible worker of Congress.”

Keshav Chand Yadav belongs to the Deoria district of Uttar Pradesh, who was appointed the Youth Congress chief in May last year. He had been the national general secretary of Indian Youth Congress and was the in charge of Punjab, Haryana and Chandigarh.

Rahul Gandhi had earlier expressed his angst over Congress leaders being nonchalant with the poll rout and not owning up the responsibility of the loss.

Ending the month-long drama, the Congress prince had on July 3, publicly announced his resignation from the post, sticking to his decision. He posted a self-contradictory, four-page letter on Twitter reiterating his decision to step down from the post of Congress president and also taking responsibility for the election results.
