Chennai: There is no question of Congress president Rahul Gandhi resigning as the cadres want him to continue in his post, said party MP S Thirunavukkarasar this morning.

Speaking to mediapersons after garlanding the Nehru statue in the city on his death anniversary, the Congress leader said the party has seen many ups and downs and it would rise again.

He said with confidence that five years hence, Rahul Gandhi would become the prime minister of India.

The former TNCC president decried the call for the scalp of the young leader for Congress’ poll debacle and said his followers wanted him to steer the party.
