Priyanka Chaturvedi quits Congress

 Two days ago, in a tweet, she expressed her displeasure over reinstatement by the party on April 15 of some party workers in Mathura who had misbehaved with her at a recent press conference.

Congress spokesperson Priyanka Chaturvedi, who had expressed her displeasure against the party in a tweet, sent her resignation to party president Rahul Gandhi on Thursday evening and joined the Shiv Sena.

As Ms Chaturvedi put her resignation letter on her Twitter handle, Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Rout told reporters that the former Congress spokesperson from Mumbai would be joining their party.
Joins Shiv Sena

Ms. Chaturvedi addressed a press conference Shiv Sena leader Uddhav Thackeray." Happy that Sena has taken me in as a family member. I am thankful to Uddhav-ji and Aditya-ji," she said.

"No need to introduce Priyanka-ji. She confidently defended her party. She thought that Sena is best choice. I welcome you to Sena family," Mr. Thackeray said.

In her resignation letter, Ms Chaturvedi said, "In the last few weeks, certain things have convinced me that my services are not valued in the organization and I have reached the end of the road. At the same time, I also feel the more time I spend in the organization will be at the cost of my own self respect and dignity."

The letter, copied to K.C. Venugopal and Randeep Surjewala, read, "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."

The trigger for her action is stated to be the reinstatement by the party on April 15 of some party workers in Mathura who had misbehaved with her at a recent press conference. They were subjected to disciplinary action, initially.
Misbehaviour by party workers

“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,” Ms. Chaturvedi tweeted on Wednesday. She has removed all the reference to the Congress from her Twitter bio.

Ms Chaturvedi was also upset over being passed over in allotment of party ticket to actor Urmila Matondkar for the Mumbai North Lok Sabha constituency.

"I have not asked, sought rewards or returns for  myself in the hope that the party and it’s leadership would take care of my aspirations,"she wrote in her letter without clearly spelling out her disappointment over being denied a Lok Sabha ticket.

The Hindu tried to contact Ms Chaturvedi.
