Sonia Gandhi New Delhi, April 9 (IANS) Congress leader Jagdish Tytler said Thursday that he “was not going to pursue” his Lok Sabha candidature and left the final decision to party president Sonia Gandhi.
“I don’t think I should fight (the election),” Tytler told a news conference.

“I am not going to pursue my ticket in the elections. I have left to the Congress high command,” he said here following the controversy over his involvement in the 1984 anti-Sikh riots.

“If my stepping down helps, I will do so. The party is bigger than myself,” he said.

The Congress Lok Sabha nominee from Delhi North-East said he was going to meet

Gandhi after the press conference.
