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.
