In a major political development, Rahul Gandhi has resigned from his post as the Congress President. Taking to Twitter on Wednesday, Rahul Gandhi put forward his resignation as the Congress chief, 49 days after the 2019 Lok Sabha election result that witnessed his party winning just 52 seats while the BJP roared back to power.
In the tweet, which came after weeks of drama over his allegedly wanting to resign taking responsibility, Rahul Gandhi released his resignation letter, wherein he claimed to have fought 'the full might of the machinery of the Indian state, at times alone'.
Reacting to the same, Deputy Chief Minister of Rajasthan, Sachin Pilot, who as per top party sources is the top pick among younger leaders of the party to succeed Rahul Gandhi, said, "Our party and the members are constantly working towards the betterment and I completely believe that Rahul Gandhi, who has tweeted his resignation today, needs to come back, because he has worked extremely hard, he has won and lost several times".
Further requesting Gandhi to take back his resignation, the Deputy CM added, "Further work that needs to be done, should be under his guidance and not just Rajasthan, but the entire country wants him to take back his resignation and work towards the betterment of the country and its citizens."
