June 21, 2019
After the huge defeat for last Lok Sabha elections, Congress party is searching in the dark for ways to come out of it. Congress President Rahul Gandhi, who has been ruling the party, expressed his interest to quit his position and even gave a resignation letter last month. But the Congress Working Committee (CWC) had refused to accept the resignation. Instead, they asked him to stay until they find a good enough replacement for Rahul. On Thursday, while talking to a news channel, Rahul said that he is standing firmly on his decision to quit his position as Congress President.

Reportedly, Rahul even said that he does not want to be a part of the selection of a new President since it would complicate things for the party. He had already taken full responsibility of the failure of Congress party for the elections.
