Motilal Vora says Rahul still our leader, expresses ignorance about himself being appointed as interim chief

Vora was widely speculated to be party's interim chief after Rahul Gandhi shared his resignation letter on social media.

“Mujhe kuch pata hi nahin (I don’t know anything)” said Congress veteran leader Motilal Vora who was widely speculated to be the interim chief after Congress President Rahul Gandhi stepped down making contradictory claims in the resignation letter posted on social media.

Vora, who is a co-accused in the National Herald scam, said that Rahul Gandhi took steps to strengthen the party and continues to be their leader. As per Republic TV, Vora credited Rahul Gandhi for forming government in Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh state assemblies. Vora added that Rahul Gandhi continues to be the leader. He said that he still considers Rahul Gandhi as President and Congress leaders will insist Rahul Gandhi takes back his resignation.

It was also speculated that Congress may appoint Sushil Kumar Shinde, a popular Dalit leader in poll-bound Maharashtra as party chief. It is widely believed that after the unexpected victory of 2004, Sonia Gandhi chose Dr Manmohan Singh to run the UPA government since she was facing resistance. It was speculated that to make sure allies like NCP, which had broken away from Congress on Sonia Gandhi’s foreign citizenship find it easier to support the Congress, Dr Singh was picked up as the face of the government. It seems like Rahul Gandhi could also be using similar tactics after the not-so-unexpected 2019 poll defeat.
