Rahul Gandhi quits as India opposition leader

Rahul Gandhi has resigned as leader of India's main opposition Congress party, ending weeks of speculation.

In his resignation letter, which he tweeted on Wednesday, he took responsibility for the party's defeat in the recent general election.

He had already announced his intention to resign, but party leaders had hoped to change his mind.

Gandhi's father, grandmother and great grandfather were all former prime ministers.

In the letter he added that while he had no "hatred or anger" towards India's ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), "every living cell in my body instinctively resists their idea of India" which he said was based on differences and hatred.
