Punjab’s Fatehgarh Sahib Member of Legislative Assembly Kuljit Nagra resigned as All India Congress Committee secretary on Monday, joining a spate of resignations that the Congress party has been seeing since Congress president Rahul Gandhi announced he was resigning from the position of party president.

Nagra is AICC secretary who is in charge of the party’s Delhi affairs.

Rahul Gandhi formally submitted his resignation earlier this week citing accountability for the party’s poor performance. His resignation has spurred several others to follow suit—most prominently, Congress party’s Mumbai chief Milind Deora and Jyotiraditya Scindia, the party’s AICC general secretary in charge of Uttar Pradesh, followed suit and resigned on Sunday.

Congress managed to secure only 52 seats these elections—seven seats more than its performance in 2014 but lower than the 55 seats needed to be called principal opposition party in the House.  

Gandhi had announced within days of election results that he would no longer continue as Congress president.  He also said he hoped that his decision to accept responsibility would spur others to follow.
