Panaji:Goa Pradesh Congress Committee President Girish Chodankar Friday tendered his resignation from the post owning the responsibility for poor performance of his party during recently held Lok Sabha and Assemby by-elections.
Chodankar said that he has submitted his resignation to All India Congress Committee President Rahul Gandhi.
“The firm decision of @RahulGandhi ji to not withdraw his resignation as @INCIndia President, morally does not permit me to continue. The defeat is our collective responsibility, hence I hereby tender my resignation forthwith as @INCGoa President,” Chodankar tweeted.
Congress had lost in four out of five assembly by-elections in Goa. It had also lost on North Goa Parliamentary seat while winning the South Goa one.
