Cong national media coordinator Rachit Seth resigns

New Delhi, With troubles continuing in Congress after the resignation of Rahul Gandhi from party president post, the grand-old party's national media coordination Rachit Seth on Thursday quit from his post. In his resignation letter to party Communication In-charge Randeep Singh Surjewala, Mr Seth said, 'After Rahul Gandhi's resignation as Congress president, there is no meaning for me to continue on this post." Mr Seth's resignation comes in the midst of the Congress struggling to find a replacement for Mr Gandhi, who had made his resignation public recently, taking responsibility of the poll setback. 'My life blood will always crave for a liberal and progressive India and Indira Gandhi shall always remain my inspiration. Thanks for guiding me like a younger brother, all throughout this journey", he stated in the letter.

Prior to his resignation, Mumbai Congress chief Milind Deora and AICC general secretary in-charge of Uttar Pradesh (West) Jyotiraditya Scindia had also resigned from their posts. In his resignation letter, Mr Gandhi had stated that accountability is critical for the future growth of the Congress party. "It is for this reason that I have resigned as Congress president", he said and added that "rebuilding the party requires hard decisions and numerous people will have to be made accountable". However, former general secretary and senior leader Janardhan Dwivedi had recently hit out at senior leaders for not following Mr Gandhi's way and he had accused them of clinging to their posts. Mr Gandhi had announced his resignation in the party's highest decision making body, the Congress Working Committee (CWC) held on May 25. However, the party leadership had rejected his resignation and asked him to restructure the party. Rejecting the CWC demand, Mr Gandhi stuck to his stand, subsequently announcing his resignation publicly.
