Rahul and Sonia Gandhi offers resignation; Congress rejects

Both the leaders offered resigned in the wake of the party’s worst-ever performance in the Lok Sabha polls.

Earlier, defending both the leader, senior leader Ahmed Patel who Political Secretary to Congress President Sonia Gandhi, that “all, including myself, are responsible for the party’s loss.”

“How can you blame any individual for this result? It is the collective responsibility of both the party and the government. All, including myself, are responsible for the party’s loss,” Patel said in the wake of resentment in the party at the way Rahul ran the election campaign.

An exercise already began in the party to insulate him from any blame game. Sonia and Rahul appeared before the media on Friday and took personal responsibility for the drubbing that left the party with just 44 seats in a House of 543, a huge climbdown from 206 seats it had in the outgoing 15th Lok Sabha.

  1. Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

    In 1937 , Walt Disney produced ( in 2D / Black & White ) , a film ,

    “ Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs “

    Around the World , this fairy tale became immensely popular , among children and adults , alike

    Closer at home , in 2014 , Narendra Modi crafted a colorful and 3D holographic film, titled ,

    “ Sonia and the Thirty-Nine Dwarfs “

    [ – also known as Congress Working Committee ]

    This became hugely popular in villages and towns of India

    And parents started teaching their tiny tots , a brand new nursery rhyme ,

    “ Madam – Baba sat on a throne

    Madam – Baba had a great fall

    All the Congress yes-men

    And all the UPA dwarfs

    Could not put Madam and Baba

    Together again “

    But surprise of surprise !

    For the Nth time , the yes-men were singing , in unison ,

    “ No !

    No , we won’t accept your resignations “

    Among those 39 dwarfs , sat a midget , who had earlier called Narendra Modi , “ Impotent “

    Little realizing that he would himself , be playing that role when election dust settles !

    Never before in the history of India , have so few inflicted so much misery on so many – and for so long !

    It is high time the dwarfs fade away from our collective memory !
