  • The spokesperson of the party expressed her discontent over the unfair treatment she received by the party

In perhaps what could come as an enormous discomfit to the grand old Congress party, a strongly worded tweet has been put out by a foremost Congress spokesperson Priyanka Chaturvedi accusing of 'inaction' by her party. 

The spokesperson of Congress expressed her discontent over the unfair treatment that she received by the party. In a tweet, she shared how the 'lumpen goons' get more preference in the party than those who have given their 'sweat and blood' 

She said: "Deeply saddened that lumpen goons get preference in the Congress 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."

 The Congress Committee of Uttar Pradesh on April had thrown some of its leaders out initially for their alleged unruly behaviour with the spokesperson in Mathura while she was there to attend a press conference, however reinstated those leaders within a few days after a reported intervention of Congress leader Jyotiraditya Scindia. 

Her tweet was in response to a letter that notified of the restoration of the leaders in their former positions within the party. However there is very little clarity on the nature of the incident in what the spokesperson claims that she was threatened by her own party workers.  According to the Chaturvedi, the incident occurred during a press conference over Rafale deal in Mathura.
