Rahul Gandhi: Will continue to fight BJP, RSS with 10 times more vigour

New Delhi:  A day after publicly announcing his resignation as Congress president, Rahul Gandhi on Thursday said he will engage in the ‘ideological fight’ with BJP and RSS with 10 times more vigour than he did during the last five years.

Rahul Gandhi was speaking to reporters after appearing in a local court in a defamation case filed by an RSS worker.

“I am with the poor, farmers and labourers. This fight (against BJP and RSS) will continue,” he said.

Gandhi described the fight as a fight of ideology. “I will continue the fight with 10 times more vigour than I did during the last five years,” he said.

Aakraman ho raha hai, maza aa raha hai (aggression is happening and I am enjoying,” Gandhi said.

He did not elaborate, saying he had said “whatever he had to say” in the four-page resignation letter he made public Wednesday.

Earlier, Rahul Gandhi had removed ‘Congress president’ as his designation from his Twitter profile, barely an hour after he posted his resignation letter on the microblogging site on Wednesday.

His profile now reads – “This is the official account of Rahul Gandhi | Member of the Indian National Congress | Member of Parliament.”

Asserting that he is no longer the Congress president, Gandhi on Wednesday had said in a letter that it had been an honour to serve the party whose values and ideals have served as the “lifeblood of this beautiful nation”.

As president of the Congress, he had said he was responsible for the party’s loss in the 2019 Lok Sabha election.

“Accountability is critical for the future growth of our party. It is for this reason that I have resigned as Congress president,” he had said in an open letter shared on Twitter.

Gandhi, who suggested that the Congress Working Committee be entrusted with the task of finding a new party president and it would not be correct for him to select his successor, also had said he owes the country and his organisation a debt of tremendous gratitude and love.
