In a major development amid Rahul Gandhi's resignation drama, the Congress on Friday dissolved all its 280 block committees in the national capital in the aftermath of the embarrassing defeat of the party in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections.
The decision was taken by former Chief Minister and Delhi Congress chief Sheila Dikshit after meeting party president Rahul Gandhi over the rout of the party in the national capital.
Also, an array of AICC Secretaries have put down their resignation on Friday, along with a Working President of Delhi Congress.
This development has come a day after Congress Rajya Sabha MP Vivek Tankha resigned from all posts in the party, giving Rahul Gandhi a "free hand" to choose his team. He took to Twitter to announce his resignation and also asked other leaders to resign for the party's current positions.
On Friday, sources told that Rahul Gandhi was upset with senior leaders of the party as despite him tendering his resignation no senior leader came forward to take the responsibility of the party's failure in the Lok Sabha. In light of this, Madhya Pradesh CM Kamal Nath came forward and took responsibility for the Congress' Lok Sabha loss.
Talking to the media, admitting his responsibility, Kamal Nath agreed with his party chief.
"Mr Rahul Gandhi is right. I don't know who has but for the debacle at least I had said whatever responsibility that I had for the six months, I had said I am responsible," he said.
Stirring further controversy in his resignation saga, Rahul Gandhi on Friday had yet again stated that he was resigning but would still continue to work for the party.
