Rahul Gandhi will not be part of the process of selecting new chief

New Delhi | Congress President Rahul Gandhi has left it on the party to elect the new president, in the wake of him being persistent on the resignation.

The Wayanad MP said that he has submitted his resignation and that he is no longer the chief.

Talking to reporters, he said, “Party should decide on the new president quickly without further delay, I’m nowhere in this process. I have already submitted my resignation and I am no longer the party president”.

He also said that Congress Working President (CWG), the highest decision-making body in the grand old party will soon convene a meeting and decide on the new president.

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 CWG 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.
