Rahul Gandhi has reisgned 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," Rahul Gandhi wrote on twitter, while sharing his resignation letter.
“The party should decide quickly on the next president without any further delay. I am nowhere in the process. I have submitted my resignation and I am no longer the president,” he told reporters as he was walked out of the Lok Sabha along with his mother and chairperson of the Congress Parliamentary Party (CPP), Sonia Gandhi.
Rahul Gandhi had offered to quit as the party chief during the May 25 meeting of the Congress Working Committee (CWC), which was called to analyze the party's poor performance in the Lok Sabha polls, in which it managed to win just 52 seats.
The CWC had unanimously rejected his offer to quit but Rahul Gandhi has been apparently firm on his stand.
