Congress expels Barkha Singh for anti-party activities

New Delhi : Just ahead of the MCD polls in Delhi, the Congress party is in a spot of bother. Biggies of the century old party are changing their guards. In a new turn of events, the Congress party has expelled Barkha Singh for six years.

The decision comes a day after Singh stepped down from her post of Delhi Mahila Congress chief for attacking party vice-president Rahul Gandhi and senior leader attacking Ajay Maken.

She charged Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi with not meeting party leaders and was reluctant to address issues within the party organisation.

Singh, who had complained against neglect of women workers in ticket distribution for the municipal elections, alleged that the voice of party workers was snubbed and their grievances were not addressed.

“Delhi Congress president (Maken) not only misbehaved with me but also with other office bearers of Mahila Congress at his residence. When the matter was brought to the notice of Rahul Gandhi, nothing happened,” said Singh, a former chairperson of Delhi Commission for Women.

 

Shortly after her expulsion, Singh took to Twitter and wrote, “#RahulGandhiMuktCongress.”
