According to sources, Congress workers gathered outside party President, Rahul Gandhi's residence on Wednesday urging him to withdraw his offer to resign.

Slogans of 'Rahulji, we are with you' and 'Please do not resign' rang through the air. Several workers were carrying placards with Gandhi's photos urging him not to resign.

Delhi Congress chief Sheila Dikshit visited Gandhi's Tughlak Lane residence. She, however, remained silent on whether she was able to meet the Gandhi scion. 


According to a close aide of Dikshit, she left a message for the Congress president in which she asked Gandhi to withdraw his offer to resign.

Boxer Vijender Singh, who had contested the Lok Sabha polls from the South Delhi constituency and ended up at the third spot claimed that the workers do not want Gandhi to resign as he is an "able and hardworking" leader.

Surprisingly, some workers have even demanded re-election in a fair manner with ballot papers instead of EVMs since the latter could have tampered.

Congress leader Jagdish Tytler said that there are millions of Congress workers who do not want Gandhi to resign. He said that the party is disappointed with the results but not his leadership.

On Tuesday, Gandhi met only his mother and UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi and sister Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, besides senior party leader K C Venugopal and the Congress's chief spokesperson Randeep Surjewala.

Rajasthan CM Ashok Gehlot and his deputy CM Sachin Pilot went to meet Gandhi at his Tughlaq Lane residence on Tuesday but only met Priyanka.

Senior Congress leaders have been urging Gandhi to take back his decision to resign and revamp the party at all levels in such challenging times.
