While Shashi Tharoor remains a bastion of support, with Digvijya Singh adding his (albeit mild) voice to the dissenters list, it is safe to say the criticism has now reached the very top of the Congress ladder.
Here is a look at some of the critics and what they had to say:
The most vocal and so far harshest critic, of Rahul Gandhi, TH Mustafa is a Keralite and three time MLA. Mustafa has also been a member of the All India Congress Committee.
In a sense Mustafa got the ball rolling, since he, along with Milind Deora, was one of the first 'senior leaders' to come out with a completely direct and scathing attack on Rahul Gandhi just a two weeks after the May 16 polls.
He said, "Rahul behaved like a joker and that's why the Congress suffered a major reversal in the general polls. Being a prime minister is not child's play and the people knew it and handed out the worst defeat to the Congress party? Rahul should take the responsibility (for the party's debacle) and quit and if not he should be removed and Priyanka Gandhi should be made the new party president...His (Rahul's) mad style of working using computer and internet and in the company of a group of CWC members who only praise whatever he does has caused this defeat. It's unfortunate that even A.K. Antony belongs to this group,"
Though Mustafa did try to keep his dynasty-supporting credentials, by ensuring a Priyanka reference made it into his tirade, there really was no turning back for him once he called his Party Vice-President a mad joker.
He was suspended from the Congress shortly thereafter.
