Confirming his continuation as Congress president two days after the working committee of the party rejected his resignation, Rahul Gandhi was back on Twitter on Monday to warn the people against dictatorship.

Gandhi used the occasion of the 55th death anniversary of Jawahar Lal Nehru, India’s first Prime Minister and his great grandfather to say, “Many democratic nations as young as India, soon degenerated into dictatorships.

On his death anniversary, let us remember Jawaharlal Nehru Ji’s contribution in building strong, independent, modern institutions, which have helped democracy survive in India for over 70 years.”

Congress won 52 seats in the just concluded General Election, a matter of great concern within the party, which had hit a historic low of 44 MPs in 2014 LS polls.
