After 13 years, Congress tasted the failure in Assam and Tarun Gogoi, Assam's chief minister will resign from his post on Thursday as taking full responsibility by himself about the failure to stop the BJP's forward march in the Lok Sabha polls.
Mr Gogoi will meet Congress president Sonia Gandhi tomorrow to submit his resignation.
Assam was a stronghold for Congress party. However, Narendra Modi's party registered its best-ever performance in the north-eastern state, including Assam. The BJP won 7 of the 14 seats, leaving the ruling Congress and Badruddin Ajmal's Assam United Democratic Front, or the AUDF, to share three seats each. Mr Gogoi's son, Gourav, somehow managed to save his family's prestige by winning the Kaliabor parliamentary constituency by a margin of about 94,000 votes.
Since 2001, Congress has been ruling the state and Mr Gogoi is into his third term as the chief minister.
Meanwhile, The Congress had won seven of the 14 seats in 2009
Sources close to the Assam chief minister, pointed on the rule and blamed "indiscipline" and "factionalism" for the party's poor show in the parliamentary polls.
Soon after the results of the Lok Sabha polls were announced, Mr Gogi told, "I take full moral responsibility, and, therefore, stand by my earlier statement if we go down below 6 seats, I will resign."
