New Delhi। Congress President Rahul Gandhi offered to resign from his post at the Congress Working Committee meeting, but his proposal was rejected unanimously by the CWC members. CWC asked him to continue amid challenging conditions.
After the CWC meet at the party headquarters in Delhi, Congress spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala said, “Rahul Gandhi offered to resign during the CWC meeting but the members of the committee in unison asked him to lead the party in the challenging conditions.”
The Congress chief has fought for the cause of the poor, the downtrodden, the farmers and the youth, Surjewala added.
In a resolution passed in the CWC they said that they fully recognizes the challenge, the failures and the shortcomings, resulting into this mandate.
The CWC recommends a thorough introspection and requested the Congress president for a complete overhaul and a detailed restructuring at every level of the party. A plan to this effect shall come into force at the earliest.
Congress could not manage to win more than 52 seats in the Loksabha this year. The 52 seat Congress tally is in itself embarrassing for the national party, given the fact that it will now not be able to elect a Leader of Opposition.
