The younger lot perceived to be close to Rahul Gandhi have been disenchanted at the way of functioning with senior leaders mostly blocking their path.

Former Haryana Congress President Ashok Tanwar who left Congress has said that young leaders were being "politically finished" by the seniors.

The move of Jyotiraditya Scindia has put the party in a tizzy.
