Assam Pradesh Congress Committee (APCC) President Ripun Bora today stated that it has decided not to contest any candidate for Rajya Sabha election as Congress cannot win alone.
Addressing a press conference today, the APCC President said that the party has accepted the public’s verdict adding that the plight of the Congress party is in bad shape.
Ripun Bora also wrote to Congress President Rahul Gandhi taking moral responsibility for the party that the party has not been able to increase its previous tally of three seats and also asked Gandhi that he might replace him.
Bora also stated that they were thinking of a candidate from the opposition who had raised voice against Citizenship (Amendment) Bill. Commenting on CAB, Bora said that it failed to impact the poll outcome but the party will continue to protest against any anti-public decisions taken by the government.
Bora also requested Rahul Gandhi to replace him and that he will take the responsibility as a President until and unless new President will take the charge, he will continue in his post as the President.
Talking about former MP Dwijen Sarma, Bora said, “I have not emphasized on what Sarma had said but I have emphasized on what I did. They have not even helped to bring a single vote by sitting in their house. I don’t know how much they love the party.”
