Panaji: Congress in Goa on Wednesday unanimously resolved to urge party president Rahul Gandhi to withdraw his resignation from the coveted post appealing him to work for strengthening the party.
The joint meeting of Goa Pradesh Congress Committee and Congress Legislative party was held on Wednesday which took the unanimous resolution urging Rahul Gandhi to withdraw his resignation as the Party president, State Leader of Opposition Chandrakant Kavlekar told reporters.
He said that it is large-hearted behaviour of Gandhi that he has tendered the resignation despite the fact that his contribution to get the party in power during Lok Sabha elections was beyond any doubt.
“We want that he should continue in the chair and strengthen the party so that we will win all the future elections,” Kavlekar said adding that Gandhi never lacked in his efforts to work for the party.
Gandhi should complete his entire tenure as the President of the party, he said.
He said that the doubts are expressed over the overwhelming victory of BJP in the recently concluded elections. “People were against Narendra Modi-led government and anger was expressed by people across the country. But despite that BJP won on several seats. Now there are doubts on these results,” he said.
“People are not able to accept the results. We expect the truth to come to the fore in the future,” Kavlekar said.
