Rita Bahuguna in focus at Priyanka’s meet

Congress leaders discuss impact of Rita’s exit

rita-bahuguna-in-focus-at-priyankaTHERE was an important meeting convened in the last week of October by Priyanka Gandhi with her party members. Congress leaders Gulam Nabi Azad, Raj Babbar, Sheila Dikshit and Sanjay Singh were present in the meeting. A source revealed that a major topic of discussion was the impact of Rita Bahuguna Joshi’s exit from the Congress in favour of BJP. They also discussed why Rita left the Congress. This revealed some new facts. It was disclosed that Rita was apprehensive of losing to Mulayam Singh’s daughter-in-law, Aparna Yadav, from Lucknow Cantonment in the upcoming assembly election. Allegedly, Aparna is also stated to be in touch with the BJP. Later, the Congress held a Brahmin conference and made Pramod Tiwari’s daughter, Mona Mishra, in charge of it without including or consulting Rita. It is also said that in the ‘Minority Conference’, the party did not allow Rita to enter. Also, it was strategically decided to send major political leaders to those districts through which Rahul Gandhi’s yatra was to pass so that they could interact with the media during the rally. Rita was in charge of Faizabad. When Rahul reached Faizabad, Rita was there to receive him. Sources revealed that Rahul got furious on seeing her and asked her what was she doing there. He also directed her to go back to Lucknow. Rita then decided that she had no future in the Congress and made her way directly to Amit Shah’s house. Rest is history.
