One of the Congress’s most known face, Priyanka Chaturvedi has resigned from Congress and joined Shiv Sena. The announcement was made in the afternoon after Chaturvedi sent her resignation to the party’s president, Rahul Gandhi late last night. Also, she was the convenor of party’s media cell. Priyanka had expressed her anguish with the party after it reinstated leaders who misbehaved with her. Priyanka Chaturvedi in a tweet said;
Deeply saddened that lumpen goons get prefence in @incindia over those who have given their sweat&blood. Having faced brickbats&abuse across board for the party but yet those who threatened me within the party getting away with not even a rap on their knuckles is unfortunate. https://t.co/CrVo1NAvz2

Several congress workers of Uttar Pradesh allegedly misbehaved with Priyanka during a press conference in Mathura on the issue of Rafale deal. However, after her complaint, the Congress initially removed them. But, after Congress general secretary Jyotiraditya Scindia’s interference, their suspension was cancelled.
“On Congress General Secretary Jyotiraditya Scindia’s intervention, action taken against you all is suspended. We expect you won’t do any such act in future that tarnish the image of the party,” a UPCC letter signed by UP Congress Executive Committee member Fazle Masood read.
She has been the face of the Congress party on national TV for a long time but failed to get a ticket in the ongoing Lok Sabha elections.
