Condemning the poster demanding the resignation of Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi, party leader and former Kanpur MP Sriprakash Jaiswal on Sunday said the act was a conspiracy against the party.

"I condemn this act; it's a plot against us. Rahulji is our leader, I refuse to believe that the man behind this act is a member of the party," said Jaiswal.

Another party leader Har Prakash Agnihotri confirmed that the Congress worker responsible for the act had been expelled.
