Top Congress leaders upset over not being invited to conference on Nehru: Reports

New Delhi: The Congress party, after suffering a rout in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections, appeared to be in disarray. Now, the recent international conference to mark former prime minister Jawaharlal Nehru's 125th birth anniversary has brought forth the split wide open.

Reports said several senior party leaders are upset at not being invited for the event.

Among these include former union ministers P Chidambaram and Kamal Nath. Apart from the duo, AK Antony, Jairam Ramesh, Kapil Sibal and Sushil Kumar Shinde were also nowhere to be seen at the international conference.

The leaders are believed to be upset with the party high command as well as Anand Sharma, who was the main figure handling the event.

The Congress has blamed a goof-up as the reason behind the leaders not being invited to the event.

Defending the leaders' absence at the conference, senior party functionaries said Antony was unwell while Ramesh was not in the country.
