Earlier Rahul Gandhi had on May 23 tweeted thanks to Wayanad voters.
‘I accept the verdict of the people of India Congratulations to the winners, Mr. Modi & the NDA. Thank you to the people of Wayanad for electing me as your MP. Thank you also to the people of Amethi. Thank you Congress workers & leaders for your hard work in this campaign’ said Rahul Gandhi in a tweet on May 23.
Earlier on May 31, Rahul Gandhi had written to Kerela Chief Minister Pinrayi Vijayan demanding an enquiry in the suicide case of a debt-ridden farmer. He also requested the Chief Minister to give financial assistance to the family of the farmer.
Rahul Gandhi won the Lok Sabha Polls with a heavy margin of over 4.30 Lakh votes from Wayanad Lok Sabha Seat. He defeated his opponent PP Sunner of CPI-M in the recently held national polls. However, Gandhi lost its stronghold Amethi by 55,000 votes by BJP‘s Smriti Irani.
It should be noted that Rahul Gandhi taking moral responsibility of the party’s poor show had offered to step down from his post at the Congress Working Committee (CWC) meeting held on Saturday. Reportedly despite the CWC rejected his resignation, now an MP from Wayanad Rahul Gandhi is said to be unfazed.
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.
