New Delhi: Maharashtra Congress leader has written to Rahul Gandhi saying a ‘non-Gandhi member must be party chief’, according to reports.
This comes at a time when the suspense over whether Congress chief Rahul Gandhi will continue as party president still persists.
Gandhi had tendered his resignation to the Congress Working Committee (CWC) on May 25 citing moral responsibility shortly after the humiliating defeat. The CWC had unanimously rejected his offer.
Despite Gandhi’s insistence to step down from the post, Congress leaders have been unwilling to accept his resignation.
Maharashtra Youth Congress spokesperson Anand Dubey has written to the Congress President stating that he welcomed Congress chief Rahul Gandhi’s decision to quit. He stressed that perhaps it was the opportune time for a “non-Gandhi” member to head the party.
Dubey questioned why a coterie of leaders within the party was not letting Gandhi to quit when he was unwilling to lead the party.
Meanwhile, veteran Congress leader M Veerappa Moily on Friday claimed that there was not even “one percent” chance of Rahul Gandhi continuing as the Congress president.
