Raj Babbar offers resignation after congress party's defeat in UP
Congress leader Raj Babbar tendered his resignation from the post of Uttar Pradesh Congress chief after his party's disastrous performance in UP assembly elections. He was appointed Uttar Pradesh Congress Committee (UPCC) president in July last year. The Congress, which contested the Uttar Pradesh Assembly election as junior ally to the ruling Samajwadi Party, fielded candidates on 105 seats. But the grand old party could win just seven of them. I could not live up to the expectation. I was given responsibility but I could not fulfil it, I accept it," Raj Babbar said. In further insult to the injury, the Congress lost all five seats in Rahul Gandhi's Lok Sabha constituency Amethi, with four of them going to the BJP.
