Hours after slamming her own party, Congress National Spokesperson Priyanka Chaturvedi resigned from all post of the party. Chaturvedi also changed her Twitter Bio and removed ‘National Spokesperson, AICC’ from her Social Media Account. This is seen as a major blow for the party in the middle of the national elections 2019.

In a letter written to Congress President Rahul Gandhi, Chaturvedi said, ‘In the last few weeks certain things have convinced me that my services are not valued in the organization and that I have reached the end of the road.’ She added, ‘What saddens me is that despite the safety, dignity, empowerment of women being promoted by the party and has been your call to action the same is not reflected in the action of some of the members of the party.’

Chaturvedi was upset with the party after the party has reinstated Mathura leaders who had misbehaved with her. Chaturvedi had on April 17 took to Twitter and had slammed the Congress. She tweeted, ‘Deeply saddened that lumpen goons get preference in over those who have given their sweat&blood. Having faced brickbats&abuse across the 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’.

She tweeted while quoting a letter from the party that stated that the reinstating of the Leaders in Mathura for allegedly misbehaving with her during a Press Conference.

Party general secretary of the UPCC, vice president of the Congress committee in Mathura and a former MLA candidate among others were suspended by the party after Chaturvedi filed a complaint against them. However, their suspension was revoked after UP West General Secretary intervene.

According to the order issued by the party signed by UP Congress Executive Committee member Fazle Masood, ‘Action taken against you all is suspended after General Secretary Jyotiraditya Scindia‘s intervention, party expect you won’t do any such act in future that tarnish the image of the party’.

Reportedly, Chaturvedi was willing to contest the polls from Mumbai Lok Sabha Seat. She was also eyeing Mathur Lok Sabha Seat. She is among the big face of the Congress party on national TV for a very long time.

However, whether She has quit the party or not us is still not clear. Most of the Leaders in the party choose not to comment on the issue when approached.
