Congress leader Manish Tewari, who has been a vocal critic of the political circus in Punjab, once again slammed the “daily soap opera” and questioned if the party thought people of the state were not “disgusted” by it.
Referring to an interview by Harish Rawat, the party’s Punjab in-charge, Tewari said in his “40 years plus in @INCIndia, I have never seen such chaos”.
In a series of tweets, Tewari detailed the ills plaguing the Punjab unit and called it “anarchy”. “Repeated open defiance of AICC by a PCC President,colleagues squabbling publicly with each other like children.Guttural language against each other that even fish wives would not use.For the past 5 months it is @INCPunjab”.

Rawat, in an interview, had said Tewari was a senior leader for whom he had “great affection” but he must understand the ground situation of Punjab. This followed Tewari’s jibe in an interview that the AICC leaders in-charge of the state had failed to appreciate how former chief minister Captain Amarinder Singh had managed the political situation in the border state and its issues, or that he ran a stable government.
