On Friday, when Congress general secretary Rahul Gandhi broke all barriers between the top leadership and grass-roots party workers, he came across a stunning revelation: the Congress’ rank and file is unhappy with the Prithviraj Chavan-led state government.

Accepting that Congress faced multiple challenges, Gandhi blamed factionalism for the party’s dismal show in the recent local self-government polls. “Congress defeats Congress,” he told elected representatives. He promised to come up with a plan to revive the party and urged elected representatives to work for the common man.

Block presidents, who work at the lowest level of Congress structure, told Gandhi during a closed-door interaction that Congress ministers did not co-operate with party workers. They complained of a widening communication gap between the party and the government and said the apathy was helping ally NCP strengthen its base ahead of the 2014 elections.
