Sonia and Rahul Gandhi to resign from top posts of the Congress party?

A day after the Congress party faced its worst defeat since Independence in the Lok Sabha Elections, a strong rumour is growing of possible resignations by the Gandhi family members from the top posts of the Congress party.

Pressure is growing on Rahul and Sonia who have publicly accepted responsibility for the terrible showing at the elections. 

However any such move by the leaders would only be seen as a symbolic measure and giving in to media pressure. The party is quite surely expected to reject any such resignation and demand that the mother-son duo stay on and continue to lead the party. 

The Congress party has won just 44 seats, down from 206 seats which it had won in the 2009 national elections. 

All eyes are now towards 10 Janpath to see what happens next within the Congress.
