Arjun Modhwadia resigns as Gujarat Congress president

Zeenews Bureau

Ahmedabad: Taking responsibility for defeat in the Gujarat Assembly Elections, Arjun Modhwadia on Thursday resigned as the state Congress’ president.

"Our state president has sent his resignation letter to party president Sonia Gandhi taking the moral responsibility of the defeat," state Congress spokesperson Manish Doshi said.

According to Doshi, Modhwadia congratulated Narendra Modi for the popular mandate which went in favour of BJP.

Modhwadia spearheaded a sustained campaign against Modi government in the run-up to the Assembly Elections.

Gujarat Congress president Arjun Modhwadia, who was seeking third consecutive term from Porbandar constituency, was defeated by his BJP rival Babu Bokhiria.

In Gujarat, the BJP was headed for a win in 116 seats, just short of the 117 it won in 2007. The Congress appeared to have improved its tally marginally from 59 last time to 60 this time.
