Mumbai: Seeking to ridicule Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi`s diktat aimed at refraining party spokespersons from making out-of-turn remarks, BJP on Wednesday said the order was apparently having no effect as Congress leaders are defying the same and "creating problems for Rahul".

"Rahulji had told Congress leaders that only party spokespersons will talk (to the media). By talking (to media), they (Congress leaders) are creating problems for Rahul Gandhi only," BJP leader Shahnawaz Hussain told reporters here after attending Iftar party organised by the city BJP unit.

Rahul had last month warned that Congress leaders who go beyond the party line will face action.
Reacting to a controversial tweet on Gujaratis by Nitesh Rane, son of Maharashtra industries minister Narayan Rane, he said "Rane is a former Shiv Sainik. He should talk about patriotism."
