In a shocking turn of event, a man who identified himself a Rahul Gandhi supporter tried to commit suicide in front of the Congress office, apparently disappointed with Rahul Gandhi’s adamant decision of not taking back his resignation.

Following a humiliating defeat in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, in which the Congress party could manage to bag only 52 Lok Sabha seats, Rahul Gandhi had tendered his resignation to the Congress Working Committee(CWC), owning up the responsibility of the party’s electoral rout. The CWC had then unanimously rejected his resignation.
However, Rahul Gandhi has been adamant of resigning from the post of Congress president and has asked the party leadership to look for suitable candidate to take his position. The Gandhi scion is of the opinion that fixing accountability is imperative for the correct functioning of the party and thus he has remained insistent on resigning from the position held by him.
Congress is arguably suffering from an existential crisis as many office bearers across the country have tendered their resignations after Rahul Gandhi expressed his angst over party leaders not taking moral responsibility and resigning from their position for the party’s poll debacle.
