TO QUIT OR NOT TO QUIT
After the poll debacle, the Congress chief, Rahul Gandhi has taken the onus upon himself for the poor performance of his party. It is being reported that during the Congress working Committee meet on 25th May, Rahul Gandhi had tendered his resignation which was unanimously refused by the committee. Rahul Gandhi is still adamant about the resignation and he images a non Gandhi to be the party supremo.
The party veterans are strongly advising Rahul Gandhi to quit his ideas of resignations and instead revamp the party at both structural and functional levels. Congress leader Pramod Tiwari quoted that ““Instead of resigning, he should seek resignations of leaders at all levels and restructure the Party.” Another Congress leader Mr Moily termed Rahul Gandhi as an inspiration for the party and quoted that “ it was not appropriate for him to quit his post. Just because [Narendra] Modi has won...that is not a criteria to leave the president ship. After all, ups and downs are common for the Congress party. We have seen them many a time. Apart from legacy, on his own personality, he is the most competent person to lead the Party.”
Rajinikant, who is a veteran star was asked about Rahul Gandhi’s resignation and replied by quoting that “He should not resign. I won’t say he lacks leadership qualities. The thing is it is very really difficult to handle the Congress party, it is an age-old party where senior-most people are there. As a youngster it is difficult to handle the senior-most people. Even I think, my observation is, the senior Congress leaders – they had not cooperated well. They had not worked hard.”
The voices and opinions against the resignation of Rahul Gandhi as the Congress chief are gaining significant momentum. As of now, the future of the Congress party stands on shaky grounds.
