After the rout in the 2019 Lok Sabha results, mass resignations have shaken the Congress’s rank and file after weeks of stunned silence by the top brass of Congress including Rahul Gandhi regarding who will lead the party henceforth.
The flurry of resignations has come just a few days after Congress chief Rahul Gandhi has said how nobody in the party had come forward to take responsiblity for the party’s shameful performance in the Lok Sabha elections.
Rahul Gandhi had aired his complaints to youth Congress leaders.
Now, a letter has set in motion a campaign of voluntary resignations in “honour and respect” of Rahul Gandhi.
Almost 120 Congress leaders have already signed the letter including Telangana in-charge Poonam Prabhakar, Bihar in-charge Virendra Rathore, Youth Congress vice-president Srinivas, Delhi Congress Working President Rajesh Lilothia and Anil Chowdhary, Madhya Pradesh in-charge Deepak Babaria and Goa in-charge Girish Chowdhankar.
While Rahul Gandhi seems adamant on his resignation, the senior Congress leaders do not want him to give up the command and are trying to convince him to stay as Congress supremo. Rahul has also clarified that having Priyanka at the helm is not possible since she too belongs to the Gandhi political dynasty.
