Update at 11:37 AM: Priyanka Chaturvedi has quit the All India Congress Committee. Meanwhile, an official statement is awaited from the Congress party. 

In a breaking development, Congress spokesperson Priyanka Chaturvedi has removed all tags of All India Congress Committee from her bio on social media profiles - both from Twitter and Instagram. 

Until recently, her Twitter profile had started with 'Convenor - AICC Communications'. Now the Twitter profile starts with 'Columnist. Blogger..'

This development has come days after Priyanka Chaturvedi called out her own party in a strong-worded tweet, expressing discontent over the unfair treatment that she received by the grand old party, accusing it of 'inaction'.

In a tweet on April 17, 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.

Meanwhile, it is unclear that why has Priyanka Chaturvedi, who is considered as one of the most vocal leaders in the party-led by Rahul Gandhi, removed the 'Convenor - AICC Communications' tag from her Twitter bio.
