As Rahul Gandhi is a mentally weak man, he has decided to flee from the political battlefield instead of fighting against the autocracy of Modi and BJP.

After a lot of dilly-dallying, Rahul Gandhi finally resigned today from the presidentship of the Congress party taking blame for his party’s humiliating defeat in the Lok Sabha election.

In the May election results, PM Narendra Modi’s BJP had won 303 of the 543 Lok Sabha seats, reducing Congress to only 52.

Although it is largely believed that Modi and BJP had won the election deceptively by tampering with the electronic voting machines (EVMs), Rahul Gandhi believes that BJP won because of his own weaknesses.

“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. It is for this reason that I have resigned as Congress president,” he said in a statement issued today.

Immediately after resigning, he suggested to the Congress Working Committee (CWC) to entrust a group of people with the task of searching a new president. He has extended his support to this search process for a smooth transition.

Rahul Gandhi also expressed his strong opposition to the BJP philosophy. “I have no hatred or anger towards the BJP but every living cell in my body instinctively resists their idea of India,” he said, adding that BJP’s attack on the country and Constitution is designed to destroy the fabric of our nation.

He also indicated in his statement that the 2019 Lok Sabha election was not fair, as BJP won with the help of a biased election commission, dishonest journalists, and corrupt judiciary.

“A free and fair election requires the neutrality of a country’s institutions; an election cannot be fair without arbiters – a free press, an independent judiciary, and a transparent election commission that is objective and neutral. Nor can an election be free if one party has a complete monopoly on financial resources,” Rahul Gandhi said.

But he did not disclose how he will overcome the problems in the Indian election system. As Rahul Gandhi is a mentally weak man, he has decided to flee from the political battlefield instead of fighting against the autocracy of Modi and BJP.
