HISSAR (HARYANA), FEB. 26. In her first remarks on the controversy surrounding the Rajya Sabha Chairperson, Najma Heptullah's criticism of the party leadership, the Congress president, Sonia Gandhi, today said the four-time member of the Upper House had "exposed herself."

Talking to mediapersons here briefly before setting out on the second leg of her `Jan Sampark Yatra' in Haryana, she said Ms. Heptullah's statements had made it clear who stood with the Congress and its ideals and who did not.

PTI reports:

Ms. Gandhi said there was no place in the party for persons having scant regard for its discipline and principles. "Indiscipline will not be tolerated at any cost. Better it will be if such people leave us," she added.
