New Delhi, Aug 24 (TIWN) Senior Congress leader and former Union minister Kapil Sibal on Monday withdrew his angry tweets saying he was informed by Rahul Gandhi personally that the former party chief had never made the "colluding with BJP" remark attributed to him.

In his new tweet, Sibal said, “Was informed by Rahul Gandhi personally that he never said what was attributed to him. I therefore withdraw my tweet.”

His remarks came after the Congress Working Committee (CWC) meeting on Monday witnessed volatile scenes with several senior leaders as Leader of the Opposition in the Rajya Sabha Ghulam Nabi Azad even offered to resign.

Sibal in a tweet earlier in the day said, “Rahul Gandhi says ‘we are colluding with BJP’. Succeeded in Rajasthan High Court defending the Congress Party. Defending party in Manipur to bring down BJP government. Last 30 years have never made a statement in favour of BJP on any issue. Yet ‘we are colluding with the BJP’!”

That tweet has now been deleted by Sibal.

The remarks by the former Union minister came soon after Rahul Gandhi targeted the party dissenters and questioned the timing of a letter which was sent to interim party chief Sonia Gandhi seeking a leadership change. According to Congress sources, at the CWC, Rahul Gandhi said, “What was the reason to write a letter when Sonia Gandhi was admitted in hospital and when the party was battling a political crisis in Rajasthan.”
