The Congress leaders regretted that Rahul has led the Congress to a one-point agenda of attacking Prime Minister Modi and when the elections come, he hikes a ride on other parties, jumping on the Lalu Prasad-Nitish Kumar bandwagon in Bihar elections and now latching on Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav in Uttar Pradesh.
The party veteran Ms. Dikshit in a newspaper interview on Thursday said that Gandhi was "still not mature, his age does not allow him to be mature".

BJP leader, Dharmendra Pradhan told a press conference that he thanked Sheila Dixit for acknowledging Rahul Gandhi was immature. "His words are those of a young, courageous and restless man", Dikshit said. The demand will, now, once again focus on whether Rahul Gandhi will be made the Congress president and his sister, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, play a more pro-active role.
