New Delhi, Aug 28 (TIWN) A simple tweet by Congress leader Shashi Tharoor advising his party colleagues to give credit to PM Modi where it is due has snowballed into a massive intra-Congress showdown. So much so that the Kerala unit of the party has asked for his explanation. But this is not an isolated reaction, but part of a growing trend where many who have been traditionally construed to be close to the Gandhis are speaking against the party line.

What the drubbing of the grand old party couldn't ensure, the decimation in 2019 has done -- subtle disagreement to open rebellion.  After a poor show in the 2019 Lok Sabha election, in spite of riding high on the data analytics provided to Rahul Gandhi suggesting the contrary, murmurs started within the Congress critiquing Rahul's leadership qualities. As Rahul resigned and went on a vacation, many leaders followed suit. But August 5 changed everything when the Modi government abrogated Article 370 of the Constitution that gave special status to J&K.
