Shiv Sena Appoints Priyanka Chaturvedi as ‘Upneta’
Shiv Sena has appointed Priyanka Chaturvedi as one of its “upneta”. Her appointment has come within a week of her resigning as spokesperson of the Congress party. This is the first organisational role given to Priyanka after she joined the BJP ally in Maharashtra on April 19.
She thanked the Shiv Sena chief on Twitter for the role assigned to her and expressed willingness to fulfil her duties to the best of her abilities. “Thank you Uddhav Thackeray ji for giving me an organisational role and responsibility, so as to contribute to the party to the best of my ability,” she tweeted.
Priyanka had resigned from Congress after the party had decided to reinstate some local leaders who had allegedly misbehaved with her during a press conference on the Rafale deal in Mathura. Congress had initially ousted the leaders but recently, taking elections into consideration, took them back into the party.
