Senior Congress leader Rahul Gandhi today walked away in a huff when journalists asked him to comment on Jyotiraditya Scindia’s resignation.
Many have blamed the Nehru-Gandhi family for Scindia quitting Congress. There have also been reports that the Gandhis, despite knowing Scindia’s unhappiness over the way things were being handled in Congress, did little to make changes.
In his resignation, Scindia had written that his only wish is to serve the people of the country and he could not see himself doing so in Congress. Following his resignation, Congress indulged in petty politics and ‘expelled’ him from party for ‘anti-party activities’. He was even abused on social media by Congress leaders and supporters and called a ‘traitor’ for ditching Congress.
