Annoyed to see the reinstatement of some objectionable men to the party fold, Congress leader and its spokesperson Priyanka Chaturvedi has joined Shiv Sena in presence of its chief Udhav Thackrey.
She was disappointed to see Congress’ decision to reinclude those who misbehaved with her.
She sent her resignation to Rahul Gandhi and left the entire WhatsApp group where she was active as a member of Indian National Congress.
On Friday, she also left the AICC communication WhatsApp group and later removed the reference of being AICC spokesperson from Twitter.
Senior Congress leaders tried to convince her for staying back but they failed to do so.

On Wednesday she had expressed anger over the decision and tweeted “Deeply saddened that lumpen goons get preference in @incindia over those who have given their sweat and blood. Having faced brickbats and 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.”Later on Thursday she dumped Congress and joined Shiv Sena.
