Congress president Sonia Gandhi on Thursday resigned from the Nehru Memorial Museum & Library (NMML), an institution that is considered an important legacy of the Nehru-Gandhi family and with which she has been associated for years now.
According to the rules, the NMML Society, an autonomous organisation under the Ministry of Culture, is presided over by the Prime Minister. So Prime Minister-elect Narendra Modi will be the president of the NMML Society after he is sworn in next week.
While NMML director Dr Mahesh Rangarajan declined to comment, highly placed sources confirmed that Sonia, who was NMML chairperson, had resigned. Sonia is also learnt to have resigned from the membership of the government’s National Committee on the Commemoration of the 125th birth anniversary of Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru.
