The Congress Working Committee (CWC) on Saturday rejected party President Rahul Gandhi’s offer to quit from his post in the wake of the debacle in the Lok Sabha elections, but Gandhi insisted that his resignation was accepted and that he didn’t withdraw his offer to step down.

The CWC called for a thorough introspection, complete overhaul and detailed restructuring at every level of the party and promised to put in place a plan of action at the earliest.
