Delhi Mahila Congress chief Sharmistha Mukherjee sounded the bugle of rebellion within the Congress party by directly blaming the senior brass of the party for a disastrous show in the Delhi Assembly elections. Taking to Twitter, Mukherjee listed out what she thinks are the reasons for the party's second consecutive debacle. Congress hasn't even been leading on any seat it contested.
