Asserting that party is not anyone's personal asset, Sharma said , “two three people give advice to Rahul. I am talking in clear terms that he does not understand the ground reality. May be, Rahul has a different mind-set, he may be having a computer culture.”

“Rahul Gandhi's advisors have no mass support and they also lack political understanding. The party gave important work of ticket distribution for the state to such leaders who have no understanding,” he said.

The Sardarshahar MLA blasted at the party after the Congress candidate from Churu parliamentary constituency Pratap Singh Poonia held him and other local leaders responsible for his defeat in the recently concluded LS elections.

Poonia accused Sharma and others of non cooperation during a feedback meeting here yesterday attended by the AICC General Secretary in charge Gurudas Kamat and PCC Chief Sachin Pilot.

“The feedback meeting is nothing but a useless exercise after losing. Party leaders' style of functioning was clearly responsible for the debacle so there is no point in discussing all these things after the defeat,” he said.  Sharma, who was not present in the meeting yesterday, said his rebellion attitude may invite action by the party but it was necessary to speak out the truth.  “I do not get affected by the party's action,” he said.

PCC President Sachin Pilot condemned Sharma's statement.  “Such indecent comments are condemnable. I understand that action should be taken. We (the party leaders) will discuss it in our meeting,” Pilot told reporters.
