DWIVEDI, DIGGY UNDER FIRE FROM CONG
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.
