The situation has now come to such a pass that several senior Congress leaders feel that it was Rahul’s style of working that caused Scindia to leave, and now Pilot wants to follow his path.

I want to convey my message to the conscience of people who are openly supporting Vikas Dubey. He is a criminal, an extortionist, who must meet his logical end. Supporting Vikas Dubey because of his caste is, in itself, a crime against society.
