Bhubaneswar: Indian National Congress Vice president Rahul Gandhi refuses to accept the resignation plea of AICC General Secretary BK Hariprasad and insists him to continue his service in the same post.
Two days ago, BK Hariprasad opted to resign from the post after yearlong unrest among party workers and massive defeat in Panchayat polls. He chose this step as he finds himself responsible for the party’s failure in this election process.
Earlier he faced strong opposition from NSUI student wing of the party during a secret meeting conducted at a hotel in Bhubaneswar after the demise of eminent youth leader Lalatendu Bidyadhar Mohapatra.
Complaint against him and PCC President Prasad Harichandan was registered before high command but no action was ensued against them amid the chaos among party workers.
