After hitting out at party, Priyanka Chaturvedi removes Congress name from Twitter bio
New Delhi, Apr 19 (IBNS): Days after criticising her own party for inducting people who had abused her, Congress leader Priyanka Chaturvedi has removed all mentions of the outfit from her Twitter bio.
Presently Chaturvedi's Twitter bio reads, "Columnist. Blogger. Saree Hoarder. Mother. Travel. Books. Music. Tweets personal, RTs not endorsement."
On Wednesday, the 40-year old politician dropped a bombshell in the election season by tweeting, "Deeply saddened that lumpen goons get prefence in @incindia over those who have given their sweat & blood. Having faced brickbats & 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."

Some Congress leaders in Uttar Pradesh had allegedly misbehaved with Chaturvedi while she was attending a press conference at Mathura.
But media reports said they were reinstated in the party for earning popular support after some initial action like suspension.
Question is now arising whether Chaturvedi has resigned as the Congress member.
A blogger and book reviewer and mother of two, Chaturvedi has been a popular face of Congress now as a spokesperson and she recently took on Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)'s Smriti Irani by mocking her for her educational qualification claims.
After Union Minister Smriti Irani declared that she did not complete her graduation, Chaturvedi mocked the actor turned BJP leader for changing her educational qualifications.
"A new serial is going to come, It is Kyun Ki Mantri Bhi Kabhi Graduate Thi (The Minister was also a graduate)," Chaturvedi said referring to the popular serial Kyun Ki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi in which Smiriti Irani starred and earned nationwide popularity.
