Sister Priyanka backs Rahul’s decision

A day after Rahul Gandhi publicly announced his resignation as the Congress chief, his sister and party leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra lauded him for his “courageous” decision.

Taking to Twitter, Priyanka Gandhi said, “Few have the courage that you do Rahul Gandhi. Deepest respect for your decision.” Priyanka Gandhi posted the message for her brother by quote tweeting the four-page open letter by Rahul Gandhi.

Rahul Gandhi, yesterday, formally resigned as Congress president, taking responsibility for the Lok Sabha polls debacle, and called for “hard decisions” to rebuild the party and making people accountable for the “failure” of 2019.

In the four-page open letter, Rahul Gandhi urged the Congress Working Committee (CWC) to entrust a group of people with the task of finding a new president as it would not be proper for him to do so.

The 49-year-old leader, who has been adamant on his decision to quit as party president since May 25, two days after the results in which his party won 52 seats, had stressed on the need for the Congress to “radically transform itself”.
