I’m not Congress president, won’t go back on my decision: Rahul Gandhi to party MPs

I am not the Congress president and I am not going back on my decision, Rahul Gandhi told his partys Lok Sabha members after they jointly made a plea to him on Wednesday to reconsider his decision of quitting the post. The Congress had convened a meeting of its Lok Sabha members to evolve the partys strategy in the lower house of Parliament on Wednesday. Soon after the meeting, chaired by Congress Parliamentary Party leader Sonia Gandhi, started, some party MPs from Tamil Nadu urged him to reconsider his decision and wanted a resolution to be passed, sources said. According to the sources, Rahul said he has asked the Congress Working Committee to make arrangements to install a party chief in his place and lamented that nothing has been in this regard so far. Rahul had quit taking full responsibility for the partys Lok Sabha poll debacle. He had conveyed his decision at the meeting of the CWC on May 25. Rahul has not been meeting party leaders since then and has not been actively involved in the partys affairs. Rahul is likely to meet leaders from Haryana on Thursday.
