A minor ‘accident’ on twitter caused a major furor in Congress, with many believing that the party is heading for a split.

Senior Congress leader Kapil Sibal unfollowed the official Twitter handles of Congress party and their vice president Rahul Gandhi for a short while late on Sunday, August 20. This led many to speculate a break in the party.

Later, Kapil Sibal clarified that a staffer had unfollowed the accounts by mistake, and his Twitter profile later showed that he was following them again, reports Hindustan Times.

Some on social media also said that P Chidambaram too had unfollowed the accounts but on Monday morning, his handle was following @INCIndia and @OfficeOfRG.

The incident led many to draw parallels with the resignation of senior Gujarat Congress leader Shankersinh Vaghela, who had stopped following Gandhi in May before eventually handing in his resignation last month.
