Top leaders of the Congress party will come together for a meeting of the working committee on Saturday, where party chief Rahul Gandhi is likely to offer his resignation. The development came after the grand old party faced a brutal defeat in the Lok Sabha polls on Thursday.
According to sources, the party has convened a meeting of the Congress Working Committee, the highest decision-making body of the party at 11 AM tomorrow.
Rahul Gandhi is likely to offer his resignation at the meet, party sources said.
The top Congress leadership will deliberate on the reasons of the humiliating loss in Lok Sabha elections and assess them. The party suffered a loss for the second time in a row at the hands of the Narendra Modi led BJP.
The party bagged only 52 seats in this election.
Top party leaders, including UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi and former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, are expected to attend the meeting.
There have already been voices within to introspect on why the party failed to reach out to the people.
