Congress national spokesperson and convenor of party's media cell Priyanka Chaturvedi resigned from the grand old party on Friday. After quitting all the posts in the party, Chaturvedi sent her resignation to the party's top brass.
She has also changed her introduction in her Twitter account where she had made a clear mention earlier about the posts she held in the party.
Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut told media that Priyanka Chaturvedi would be joining the Shiv Sena today.
Earlier this week, Chaturvedi expressed her displeasure over the party's decision to take back some of its old timers who were expelled for misbehaving with her.
"Deeply saddened that lumpen goons get prefence [sic] in @incindia [Congress] over those who have given their sweat & blood," Chaturvedi tweeted in a strongly-worded post. She adds: “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.”

However, keeping in view the ongoing election process, the party has decided to reinstate those leaders within a few days after a reported intervention of Congress national general secretary and in-charge western UP Jyotiraditya Scindia.
