Taking responsibility for the humiliating drubbing in the Lok Sabha election, Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Saturday offered his resignation to the Congress Working Committee which met in New Delhi to discuss the poll debacle. His resignation was, however, rejected by the highest decision-making body of the party, sources said. Top Congress leaders from across the country got together to review the party's defeat in the Lok Sabha polls. Though the party improved on its 2014 tally of 44, it could win just 52 Lok Sabha seats this year. Uttar Pradesh Congress chief Raj Babbar and Odisha Congress president Niranjan Patnaik have announced their resignations from the post.
