New Delhi, April 21: A day after Barkha Shukla Singh submitted her resignation from Delhi Congress women's wing chief, the party expelled her from the party for six years.
While BJP is calling for 'Congress mukt Bharat', Singh is rooting for 'Rahul mukt Congress'.
Singh had submitted her resignation yesterday while leveling accusations on Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi and Delhi unit chief Ajay Maken. However, she had vowed not to quit the party.
The four-member disciplinary committee of Congress' Delhi unit removed her for indulging in "anti-party activities" days ahead of the municipal polls. The decision makers were former Delhi minister Narender Nath, former Mahila Congress chief Abha Chaudhary, and party leaders Mahmood Zia and Surender Kumar.
She slammed Rahul and said the decision "proved" his "mental bankruptcy" and added that she will take legal recourse against it.
"The Congress is not the Gandhi family's property," Singh said, claiming she had no plans to join the BJP or any other party at this point.
She had yesterday accused Gandhi of not meeting party leaders and that he was "reluctant" to address "issues" within the organisation. She also levelled allegations of "misbehaviour" against Maken.
Earlier, Singh had complained against "neglect" of women workers in ticket distribution for the civic polls, alleging that the party workers were "snubbed" and their grievances were not addressed.
