Sonia rejects resignation offers from MP legislators

March 25, 2006 15:59 IST

Two Congress members of Parliament, including Jyotiraditya Scindia, and more than 25 legislators from Madhya Pradesh Saturday offered their resignations as legislators to Congress president Sonia Gandhi, but she rejected the offer.

The MPs and the MLAs together met Sonia at her residence in Delhi to express their solidarity with the stand taken by her in resigning from the Lok Sabha and from the chairmanship of the National Advisory Council.

According to sources, they complained to Sonia that many Bharatiya Janata Party leaders in Madhya Pradesh had not resigned as MLAs inspite of holding offices of profit.

Sonia dissuaded the Congress MPs and the MLAs from submitting their resignation and asked them to carry on with their work.

The MLAs were accompanied by Union Ministers Suresh Pachori and Kanti Lal Bhuria, both belonging to Madhya Pradesh, during the meeting with the Congress president, according to sources.

Sonia had Friday called upon the party MPs, holding office of profit, not to submit their resignation to express their solidarity with her, but to concentrate on their work as there was no need for their resignations.
