She had also said the Congress was undergoing a generational change and in the change in the political scenario both Congress and Rahul Gandhi were adjusting. He is fighting for the rights of farmers, SCs, STs and poor."In a clarification of sorts issued by Dikshit with a hashtag DontTwistMyWords, she tweeted, "Rahul has the sensitivity and concern of a mature leader".
