In the wake of infighting and a deep disconnect between the party leadership and grassroot workers in the state, Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday warned of drastic measures to correct the situation.  A visibly rankled Rahul directed the partymen to end the infighting in the next two to three months.

“We will put up a reinvigorated, unified front in the coming elections. The senior leaders will have to put behind their differences and fight unitedly for the party. If this does not happen, strong measures will be taken. Anti-party activities will not be tolerated,” he asserted.  In his second leg of interactions with the district and block functionaries as well as the elected representatives of the civic  bodies here, Rahul was told that factionalism was the main cause for the party’s failure in the state.   It is also said to have come to his attention that the grassroot level functionaries, including the district committee members, panchayat, block and other representatives did not have any say in the party organisation.
