Congress national spokesperson and convenor of party's media cell Priyanka Chaturvedi resigned from the party, sources said.

After quitting all the posts in the party, Priyanka sent her resignation to the party's top brass.

She has also changed her introduction for her Twitter account. She removed the words National Spokesperson, AICC from her Twitter bio. 

She was miffed at the reinstatement of some party workers in Uttar Pradesh who had threatened and misbehaved with her during her press conference in Mathura a few days ago.

The party which had suspended those workers reinstated them on April 15.

The action of rescinding the suspension, party leaders claimed, was taken on the recommendation of Congress general secretary for West Uttar Pradesh Jyotiraditya Scindia.

Priyanka Chaturvedi's resignation letter to Congress chief Rahul Gandhi says 'misbehaviour against me by certain party members has been ignored under the guise of all hands needed for elections...this indignity is the final factor to convince me to move on and focus on other things outside INC'

National Conference chief Omar Abdullah took to Twitter to support Priyanka Chaturvedi, saying that she was an 'asset' to the Congress party and a 'fearless advocate' for its leadership.
