NEW DELHI: Congress spokesperson Priyanka Chaturvedi resigned from the party on Friday days after expressing dismay over the reinstatement of partymen who misbehaved with her during a press conference in Mathura a few days ago.
Sharing her resignation letter on Twitter, Chaturvedi said that she felt “overwhelmed and grateful” by the support she received in the past three days.
Chaturvedi also changed her bio on Twitter where she had made a clear mention earlier about the posts she held in the party.
The development comes two days after Chaturvedi had alleged that partymen, who had “misbehaved” and “threatened” her, were being let off.
She lashed out at the party in public and accused it of giving preference to “lumpen goons” over those who had given their “sweat and blood” to the Congress.
Chaturvedi had tweeted that it was unfortunate and saddening that those who threatened her have got away without even “a rap on their knuckles”.
The Uttar Pradesh Congress had suspended some workers for misbehaving with Chaturvedi during a press conference in Mathura a few days ago.
But, on Monday, the party issued a communication in which it rescinded all actions taken earlier against such workers who “misbehaved” with Chaturvedi in Mathura.
