Rahul Gandhi, 49, resigned as President of Congress, India’s main opposition party on Wednesday, admits the embarrassing defeat to the ruling party of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Born as a son, grandson and great-grandson to former Indian Prime Minister, traditionally guarantees Rahul to occupy the post, but the miracle does not exist, the newest heir to the most prominent and influential Indian family.

Congress seems to have been weakening since decades while the Gandhi family struggled beyond expectations to being the same new Indian figure as Kennedy’s family in the United States.

Rahul Gandhi was born in 1970 when his grandmother, Indira Gandhi, the daughter of India’s first Prime Minister, Jawaharlal Nehru, became Prime Minister.

In 1984, Indira was shot dead by his bodyguard and replaced by his son, Rajiv, Rahul’s father.

Rajiv was killed in 1991 by a Tamil bomber when Rahul was 20 years old.

He entered Harvard University but dropped out after a year, following his father’s death.

His mother Sonia Gandhi was born in Italy, took over the leadership of Congress in 1998 before handing over power to his eldest son in 2017.

While Sonia remains a leader, Rahul is the ultimate mastermind of the 2014 election campaign which saw Modi’s leader Bharatiya Janata (BJP) defeat Congress.

Soon after the resignation as head of Congress party, Rahul Gandhi has changed his designation as Member of the Indian National Congress, and Member of Parliament.

“Accountability is critical for the future growth of our party. It is for this reason that I have resigned as Congress president,” Rahul said in an open letter shared on Twitter.

Rahul Gandhi, who suggested that the Congress Working Committee be entrusted with the task of finding a new party president and it would not be correct for him to select his successor, also said he owes the country and his organisation a debt of tremendous gratitude and love.
