Protests at Congress office against Rahul Gandhi’s resignation

Congress leaders and workers staged a sit-in on Tuesday to cajole an unrelenting Rahul Gandhi to reconsider his decision to step down as party president.

The day-long protest in the lawns of the Congress headquarters in Delhi also saw a party worker from Delhi climbing a tree to attempt suicide in a bid to persuade Gandhi to withdraw his resignation offer. But he was stopped by the other Congress workers present there.

“Rahul Gandhi should take back his resignation else I will hang myself from a tree,” Congress worker Hanif Khan told reporters before making the attempt.

While there were no speeches, the protestors listened to Mahatma Gandhi’s favourite hymns and bhajans, including “Vaishnava Jan To”.
