Sonia And Rahul Gandhi May Offer Resignations After Congress Rout: Sources

Written by | May 17, 2014 | 0

New Delhi : Congress president Sonia Gandhi and her son Rahul Gandhi may offer to resign, sources say, a day after they both accepted responsibility for the party’s worst performance ever in the national election.

According to Congress party sources, they are likely to make the offer at a meeting on Monday of the Congress Working Committee, the party’s top decision-making body, in a move that will largely be symbolic as party leaders are unlikely to accept it.

Sources say emotional speeches will set the tone for deep introspection on the Congress’ spectacular rout. India’s oldest party was reduced to double digits in Parliament and failed to win a single seat in 10 states, as a long and grueling campaign by Rahul Gandhi failed to stop the tide of public anger.

Yesterday, both leaders made brief statements to the media after their party’s debacle.
