There have been a string of defections from the Congress recently.
The high-profile ones include former UP chief minister ND Tewari, former Karnataka chief minister SM Krishna, and former UP Congress chief Rita Bahugana Joshi.
New reports have murmured that the blame for the condition the Congress finds itself in -- and the reason for the defections -- is pointed at Congress vice president and heir apparent Rahul Gandhi.
