Congress national spokesperson Priyanka Chaturvedi on Wednesday slammed her own party after it reinstated some leaders for misbehaving with her in Mathura.
In a tweet, Chaturvedi lashed out at the party saying “lumpen goons get preference in the Congress over those who have given their sweat and blood”.
“Deeply saddened that lumpen goons get preference in @incindia over those who have given their sweat&blood. Having faced brickbats&abuse across the 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 (sic),” she tweeted.
She also retweeted a Congress notice shared by a journalist stating that the leaders have been reinstated.

Some local party leaders had allegedly misbehaved with Priyanka Chaturvedi while she was attending a press conference in Mathura a few days back. Congress had initially thrown them out but recently taking the elections into consideration they were reportedly taken back.
The action of rescinding the suspension, party leaders claimed, was taken on the recommendations of Congress general secretary for West Uttar Pradesh Jyotiraditya Scindia.
Chaturvedi has been trending on social media for her “Kyunki Mantri Bhi Kabhi Graduate Thi” jibe at Union minister Smriti Irani, who is contesting from Amethi in Uttar Pradesh against Congress president Rahul Gandhi.
