Having already announced his willingness to resign Mr Gandhi was expected to change his mind following pressure from his own party members.
In the tweet put out by his official handle Mr Gandhi accused principal ruling Hindu nationalist party lead by Prime Minister Narendra Modi saying “we didn’t fight a political party… we fought the entire machinery of the Indian state”.
“I owe the country and my organisation a debt of tremendous gratitude and love”, he followed.

It is an honour for me to serve the Congress Party, whose values and ideals have served as the lifeblood of our beautiful nation.
I owe the country and my organisation a debt of tremendous gratitude and love.

In the world’s largest electoral exercise earlier this year incumbent Bhartiya Janata Party led by Prime Minister Modi stormed back to power on even bigger mandate which was highly unexpected and happened first time in about couple of decades in India’s history.
In this crucial election Mr Gandhi lost Amethi, an traditional Congress bastion heldsince Gandhi Prime Minister’s, in most populous and electorally crucial northern state of Uttar Pradesh.
Mr Gandhi was also the leader of Congress while it suffered its worst ever defeats in Indian electorate in 2014 and 2019, winning just 44 and 52 respectively of India’s 543 seats.
Following his resignation there has been an mixed response on Twitter, including mockery of the democracy in the grand old party.
#RahulGandhi in his resignation's 1st page takes responsibility of loss and by the time u reach 3rd page he claims tht Cong lost bcz all institutions like EC, Judiciary, Media were Hijacked. Confused again?? or Wants to look Mahatma by resigning bt doesn't really want to own it?

Good that @RahulGandhi remained consistent about the resignation but without elections to the CWC, whoever it picks next will be a figure head rendering the process of change absolutely meaningless https://t.co/3TcMyISBbi

90 years old Motilal Vora ji to be the new Congress president.. bcz other young leaders like 101 year old Sitaram Kesri, 102 years old Indira Gandhi & 130 years old Nehru ji are not available now to lead the party. #RahulGandhi
