Rahul Gandhi offically bids goodbye to party leadership

A month after the massive Lok Sabha defeat, now-former Congress President Rahul Gandhi has officially resigned from the post of Congress chief.

“It is an honour for me to serve the Congress Party, whose values and ideals have served as the lifeblood of our beautiful nation. I owe the country and my organisation a debt of tremendous gratitude and love,” he tweeted.


Writing a letter, he wrote that he takes full responsibility for the loss of 2019 elections.

He also said that he was empowered his party to find a new chief who can lead them with courage, love and fidelity.

“I owe country and my organisation a debt of tremendous gratitude and love”, Rahul Gandhi said in the letter.

“Congress must radically transform itself, it is party’s duty to defend people’s voices that BJP is crushing”, he added.

“I was born a Congressman, this party has always been with me and is my life’s blood and forever that way it shall remain”, he said.

Earlier today, he had told reporters that the Congress should choose a new president “quickly and without further delay” and that he was not part of the process at all as he had already resigned.

After the massive loss in the recently concluded Lok Sabha elections, Rahul Gandhi had offered to step down from his post, taking moral responsibility for the defeat.

The CWC had declined his resignation, however, Rahul Gandhi kept on insisting.

Various senior congress leaders, Youth Congress, among other party leaders had pleaded Gandhi to take back his decision.

Speculations are already arising on who will be the next party chief.

In the Lok Sabha polls, Congress managed to win only 52 seats out of 543-member Lok Sabha. Whereas, their direct opponent and ruling party BJP won a whopping number of 303 seats.
