The poster, apparently on behalf of ‘all Congress workers in MPCC’ appeals to Rahul Gandhi that their leader Jyotiraditya Scindia should be given ‘national leadership’ role as per his working style.
Scindia had announced yesterday that taking responsibility for the party’s defeat in the general elections, he has submitted his resignation from the post of general secretary to party president Rahul Gandhi.
The drama for the Congress president post has been ongoing for over a month in the party. After Rahul Gandhi declared that he is resigning as party chief, there have reportedly been divided opinions within the party on who shall succeed him. While a faction of leaders wants a Gandhi family loyalist old guard at the post, there is another faction which supports young blood.
