As president of the Congress, Rahul Gandhi took 100 per cent responsibility of the party's loss in the 2019 Lok Sabha 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 an open letter shared on Twitter.
