Sonia rejects resignation offers from MP legislators

Written by: Staff

New Delhi, Mar 25 (UNI) Two Congress MPs,including Jyotiraditya Scindia, and more than 25 MLAs from Madhya Pradesh today offered their resignation as legislators to Congress President Sonia Gandhi, but she rejected the offer.

The MPs and the MLAs together met Mrs Gandhi at her residence here to express their solidarity with the stand taken by her in resigning from the Lok Sabha and from the chairmanship of the National Advisory Council.

According to sources, they complained to Mrs Gandhi that many BJP leaders in Madhya Pradesh had not resigned as MLAs inspite of holding offices of profit.

Mrs Gandhi dissuaded the Congress MPs and the MLAs from submitting their resignation and asked them to carry on with their work.

The MLAs were accompanied by Union Ministers Suresh Pachori and Kanti Lal Bhuria, both belonging to Madhya Pradesh, during the meeting with the Congress President, according to sources.

Mrs Gandhi had yesterday called upon the party MPs, holding office of profit, not to submit their resignation to express their solidarity with her but to concentrate on their work as there was no need for their resignations.
