‘Few have the courage that you do’: Priyanka Gandhi Vadra lauds Rahul Gandhi’s decision to resign

Taking to Twitter, Priyanka said, "Few have the courage that you do, Rahul Gandhi. Deepest respect for your decision. "


A day after her brother Rahul Gandhi resigned as Congress President, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Thursday tweeted lauding brother's “courage” to take responsibility for the party’s disastrous performance in the Lok Sabha elections and step down as party chief.

Taking to Twitter, Priyanka referred to Rahul’s statement on resigning as party chief, and said, “Few have the courage that you do, Rahul Gandhi. Deepest respect for your decision.” Priyanka was appointed Congress general secretary days before the Lok Sabha elections.

Congress President Rahul Gandhi said on Wednesday that he was no longer the party chief and that he was to blame for its rout in the Lok Sabha elections. "As President of the Congress party, I am responsible for the loss of the 2019 election. Accountability is critical for the future growth of our party," he said in a letter that was put on his Twitter account. The letter said: "Rebuilding the party requires hard decisions and numerous people will have to be made accountable for the failure of 2019. It would be unjust to hold others accountable but ignore my own responsibility as President of the party."

Soon after Rahul Gandhi said that he was no longer the Congress chief, party leaders said he would continue as the party President till the Congress Working Committee (CWC) meets and accepts his resignation. The CWC is the party's top decision-making body, and is authorised to start the process of electing Gandhi's successor.
