LUCKNOW || In a move that seems to have far-reaching consequences in the Gandhi bastion of Rae Bareli, its Sadar legislator Aditi Singh on Wednesday removed the mention of Congress from her Twitter handle. This was her official Twitter handle and as soon as she removed the Congress affiliation, the micro-blogging site also removed the verified tag (a blue tick) from her profile.
Once a close Gandhi family confidante, Singh had a few days ago taken on her party accusing it of “engaging in petty politics of sending buses for migrant labourers.”
She had stunned everyone by calling these efforts rolled out by Priyanka Gandhi Vadra a gimmick. Singh is the daughter of late politician Akhilesh Singh and was the general secretary of the women wing of the Congress.
The party had suspended her for the Tweet and has issued her a showcase notice for anti-party activities. There are strong rumours that she was planning an entry into the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
