The Congress is in a dilemma over the Third Front option.
A K Antony, Ahmed Patel, Prithviraj Chavan, Salman Khurshid and Digvijaya Singh issued statements one after the other, saying the Congress may prop up a non-BJP government after May 16.
Their pronouncements have not gone down well with the party's young guns.
Team Rahul is puzzled by these statements at a time when polling in Uttar Pradesh and Bihar is scheduled for May 7 and 12.
Leaders like Kumari Selja have lodged a complaint with Congress boss Sonia Gandhi that the old fogies must be restrained from making such reckless statements.
