New Delhi: Se­nior Congress lead­ers Digvi­jay Singh and Ja­nar­dan Dwivedi were Mon­day un­der fire from the AICC over their re­marks con­cern­ing Rahul Gandhi and ad­vo­cat­ing that elder lead­ers take a back­seat in favour of the young. “It is not a good thing,” party gen­eral sec­re­tary Mad­husu­dan Mistry told re­porters, ques­tion­ing the two lead­ers is­su­ing state­ments to the me­dia on the is­sues when the Congress chief and vice pres­i­dent are “eas­ily ac­ces­si­ble” to them. The AICC brief­ing also saw spokesper­son Ab­hishek Singhvi dub­bing as “not ap­pro­pri­ate” the state­ments of Singh. Digvi­jay Singh had re­marked that Rahul Gandhi’s si­lence on crit­i­cal is­sues had con­trib­uted to their loss in the “war of per­cep­tion”. Mr Singh had said the party vice- pres­i­dent should be “more vis­i­ble and heard more” to bring the Congress back on the path of re­vival.
