Congress President Rahul Gandhi offers his resignation on Friday from the post and party is trying to change his mind. Adding to this RJD leader Lalu Prasad Yadav and DMK chief Stalin asked him not to quit calling it BJP trap.
Yesterday Stalin and Lalu issued public statements that Gandhi should continue as party chief. If he quits, this would be a benefit to BJP and lose to opposition.
On Tuesday Stalin called Rahul and appealed him not to give up as party president. Stalin said to him that Congress had lost the election but he had won the hearts.
At the same time, Lalu Prasad Yadav termed Rahul’s offer to resign as “BJP’s Trap“. He said that it would be a suicidal decision not just for Congress but for all the political opposition forces fighting against RSS. He warned him that if a non-Gandhi was elected as Congress president, Modi-Shah would call him as a puppet of Gandhi Family.
