A Congress worker threatened to commit suicide by trying to hang himself from a tree outside the party’s headquarters in Delhi if Rahul Gandhi does not withdraw his resignation as party president.
In a bizarre incident Hanif Khan, the party worker, climbed a tree with a rope in his hand. He had to be carried away from the spot by security staff and police.
Hundreds of party workers who resigned from their positions in the Congress party gathered around the party headquarters for an indefinite strike.
The agitation coincides with the five Chief Ministers of Congress-ruled states meeting Rahul Gandhi to urge him to continue as the party president.
The drama over Mr. Gandhi’s resignation is ongoing from the 25th of May, after the first Congress Working Committee met following the party’s poor performance in the Lok Sabha elections. However, his offer to quit was rejected unanimously by the Congress Working Committee members and they even passed a resolution on that.
