'I'll quit,' asserts Rahul... 'No question,' says CWC

New Delhi: Taking moral responsibility for the Congress debacle in the recently concluded Lok Sabha polls, party President Rahul Gandhi on Saturday offered to resign at a meeting of the Congress Working Committee (CWC), the highest decision-making body of the party.

However, his proposal was unanimously rejected by the CWC members, who refused to accept his resignation. Instead, the CWC asked Gandhi to continue in the top post and authorised him to take all required steps to restructure the party after its drubbing in the general elections.

Giving the details of the CWC meeting, Congress' Chief Spokesperson Randeep Surjewala told reporters that a resolution has been passed in the CWC. The resolution adopted by the CWC also called for 'thorough introspection and complete overhaul' of the party at the earliest, while committing to bring about a plan soon to this effect.

Interestingly, the conference was addressed by seven Congress leaders including former Union ministers A K Antony, Ghulam Nabi Azad and R P N Singh. Other party leaders who were present at the conference were Gaurav Gogoi and Sushmita Dev.
