The resignations have been asked in order to facilitate reorganisation of PCC (Pradesh Congress Committee).
The grand old party has very little to show performance-wise in the recently concluded Assembly elections in the five states. Besides a poor show in UP, Uttarakhand, Goa and Manipur, it lost Punjab, one of the last three remaining states where it was in power.
The move comes two days after the Congress Working Committee (CWC) held a meeting that continued for over and urged Gandhi to continue to lead and initiate changes required to strengthen the party.
The CWC also rejected her offer to make any and every sacrifice for the party, which was construed by some as an offer of Gandhi family to step aside, and reposed faith in her leadership.
“We will fight on. We will overcome. We will continue to raise your voice,” the party said.
