Rahul distances himself from Congress

NEW DELHI: Even since Rahul Gandhi’s exit as the Congress president after the party was drubbed in the Lok Sabha elections, the rift between the Congress old guard and young Turks has been widening.

With Rahul gone, both the sides are at loggerheads and the young leadership that Rahul tried to nurture has been left to fend for itself, with no support from their one-time mentor.

In the last four months, the party has seen the old guard having its way in key appointments while many of Rahul appointees have either left the party or have been forced to give up the plum posts they got when the Gandhi scion was at the helm.

The MP from Wayanad has distanced himself from the party’s routine affairs, limiting himself to target the Central government on social media platforms.
