Hours after Priyanka Chaturvedi resigned from Congress, senior party leader Kapil Sibal issues the first response in the matter. Responding to the question of reporter over her resignation amid the ongoing Lok Sabha polls, Kapil Sibal said that it is an internal matter between her and the Congress party.

"It is okay. It is between her (Priyanka Chaturvedi) and Congress party," said Kapil Sibal on Friday. 

In a major embarrassment to Congress, Priyanka Chaturvedi, AICC Spokesperson and Convenor Communication, officially quit from all posts and primary membership of the party on Friday.

In a letter dated April 18 to Congress president Rahul Gandhi, she has rendered her resignation from the party.

"I had joined the INC as a member of Youth Congress in Mumbai 10 years back as I believed in the ideology of the party and your vision of inclusive, liberal, progressive politics. In the last few weeks certain things have convinced me that me service was not valued in the organisation and that I have reached the end of the road," she wrote in her resignation.
