Who has the actual moral responsibility?Just now I have got the news. Karnataka North Congress Working President Shri SR Patil has tendered his resignation on moral grounds owing to party's performance in recent Assembly elections in the state. Shri Patil has sent his resignation letter to the Congress President Shri Rahul Gandhi. The 69-year-old leader had been the minister in the previous Siddaramiah Government. He served as the Minister for Infrastructure, Information Technology, Biotechnology, Science and Technology, Planning and Statistics in the State Government.
Frankly speaking, I never knew about Shri Patil earlier. It seems that he is not a very important leader of the party. He was not in the limelight during the long election campaign of the party. The Party President Shri Rahul Gandhi and the former Cheif Minister Shri Siddaramaiah were the faces of the party during the campaign phase.
I think the Party President has more responsibility in the debacle of the Congress party in the recently held Assembly election. Shouldn't the Party President Shri Gandhi follow the footsteps of the veteran leader, Shri SR Patil, and tender his resignation for the drubbing his party received?
