After yet another major defeat, the Congress President Rahul Gandhi has reportedly offered to resign from his post. His request will be discussed in next week’s Congress working committee report.
Sources told India Today TV that Gandhi told a group of senior Congress leaders including his mother Sonia that he takes full responsibility for the election defeat and that he is willing to resign as the party’s president.
However, Congress spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala has denied the reports of Rahul Gandhi offering to resign.
Addressing a press conference, the Congress president wished Prime Minister “all the best” and hoped that he looks after the interest of the people. When reporters asked what went wrong according to him, Gandhi said it did not matter today what he thinks but told Congress party workers to not feel dejected and have faith.
“Today is the day to wish Modi all the best, hopes he looks after the interest of the nation,” he said.
“I told before the campaign that voters will decide the final verdict and they have given their verdict,” he said.
