Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel on Thursday met Congress President Rahul Gandhi in the national Capital. Baghel said that every Congress Leader and Worker wants Rahul Gandhi to continue as party President.

Speaking to media after meeting the Congress Chief, Baghel said, ‘Everyone wants that Rahul Gandhi should continue as Congress party President. No Congress worker has any doubt in his leadership and the way he fought in the last polls’. He added that ‘Rahul Gandhi has the ability to keep everyone together’.

Replying to a query of a scribe about the ‘One Nation, One Election’, Baghel said. ‘BJP rather should focus on issues like poverty and employment’.

While Congress Senior Leader PL Punia also lauded Rahul Gandhi. Punia said, ‘He is the working President of the Party, He is the one who will decide whether he will be Chief of the party or not’. However, He added, ‘He is our party President and will remain so in further’.

Earlier on June 14, Party’s spokesperson Randeep Surjewala said that Rahul Gandhi will continue to lead us. He said, ‘He was, he is and he will Congress President’.

Gandhi had offered to step down from his post at the Congress Working Committee (CWC) meeting held on May 25 after poll results. Reportedly despite the CWC rejected his resignation, now an MP from Wayanad Rahul Gandhi is said to be unfazed.

The Congress had held its Working Committee meeting to discuss the reasons responsible for its poor performance in the recently held national polls 2019. Rahul Gandhi taking moral responsibility of defeat had on Saturday offered his resignation and asked party leaders to get a new name for party president post.

The Congress faced a crushing defeat in national polls and won 52 seats, which is only 8 more than it got in 2014 national polls. It has also lost some of its strongholds across the country including Rahul Gandhi’s Amethi in Uttar Pradesh and Jyotiraditya Scindia‘s Guna in Madhya Pradesh.
