I owe the country and my organisation a debt of tremendous gratitude and love. Jai Hind (sic)”
His open letter that he tweeted read: “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.”
Attacking RSS, Rahul Gandhi wrote, “The stated objectves of the RSS, the capture of our country’s institutional structure, is now complete. Our democracy has been fundamentally weakened. There is a real danger that from now on, elections will go from being a determinant of India’s future to a mere ritual.”
