Aditi Singh, MLA from Rae Bareli Sadar seat of Uttar Pradesh, finally left the Congress. For a long time there were speculations that Aditi Singh might join BJP. On Wednesday, Aditi joined the BJP in the presence of BJP state president Swatantradev Singh. This is being described as a setback for the Congress but it is not. Aditi Singh has been adopting a rebellious attitude against the party for a long time. He has given many strong statements regarding Priyanka Gandhi, Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi.
Apart from this, Yogi Adityanath and the BJP government have also been praised many times. On Wednesday itself, after joining the BJP, she said that she was very impressed with the working style of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath. He said that I observed his style of working for the whole five years. I promise to win my seat by working as hard as I can.
Love for BJP, attack on Congress
Aditi Singh, who described Yogi Adityanath as her political guru, was sure that she can join BJP anytime. Only that speculation has been stamped on Wednesday. At the same time, Congress also wanted to get rid of the rebel Aditi for a long time. A letter had already been written by the party to the speaker to cancel the assembly membership of Aditi Singh. Still, the Congress avoided expelling Aditi from the party or taking any other strict action on her. The reason for this was that the party did not want to unnecessarily allow Aditi to become a ‘martyr’, so that she would get political advantage and the Congress would have to bear the loss.
Front opened against Gandhi family
Aditi Singh had contested the 2017 assembly elections from the seat of her father and former Congress leader Akhilesh Singh. It is said that Priyanka Gandhi had a big role in making Aditi the Congress candidate from Rae Bareli. After becoming an MLA, Aditi’s voice started going against the party line. On several occasions, Aditi openly criticized the Congress party and its leaders.
1. Targeting Rahul
Rahul Gandhi had said on his Wayanad tour that during his 15 years as an MP from North India, he had got used to a different kind of politics. After coming to Kerala, he came to know that the people here take interest in the issues. Aditi Singh was very angry on this statement of Rahul. Showing a sharp attitude on this, he had openly taught Rahul Gandhi the lesson of morality. He said that it is wrong to talk like this for Amethi from where your (Rahul’s) ancestors got victory, got respect. Rahul Gandhi should apologize to the people of Amethi for this.
2. Attack on Priyanka
Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra was the most targeted by Aditi Singh. Recently, while targeting Priyanka over the agriculture law, Aditi Singh said that Priyanka Gandhi had a problem when the agriculture law was brought. Now that agricultural laws have been repealed, they are facing problems. What does she want? It should be stated clearly.
3. Politics on Lakhimpur Incident
Not only this, even after the Lakhimpur incident, he took a dig at Priyanka and said, ‘She (Priyanka) has a political lack of issues. She is doing politics on every issue. Aditi said, ‘The CBI investigation into the Lakhimpur incident is going on. The Supreme Court is taking cognizance of the entire matter. “If Priyanka doesn’t trust institutions, I don’t understand who she trusts,” she said.
4. I can fight but I am a girl
Aditi also took a jibe at Priyanka’s ‘I am a girl, can fight’ campaign. He said that first of all he should strengthen his stand on his personal secretary Sandeep Singh. A case of molestation has been registered against them. On Priyanka’s decision to give 40 percent tickets to women in the UP elections, Aditi said she is only distributing lollipops. Her mother is the party president and she is making excuses that she is talking in other states.
5. Introspection Advice
Aditi Singh was an attacker on the party even after Union Minister Jitin Prasada left the Congress. He had said that if educated, young, experienced and big leaders like Jitin Prasada and Jyotiraditya Scindia are leaving the party, then the top leadership of the Congress should introspect. He further said that now Congress has become a family party.
6. Told Yogi the political guru
During the protest against CAA-NRC, the Yogi Adityanath government had called a special session of the UP Legislative Assembly. Congress boycotted it. Then Aditi Singh not only participated in the session but also gave a speech there. Last year, when the decision on the assembly membership of Aditi Singh came, her supporters raised slogans of Yogi Adityanath Zindabad. Not only this, after this Aditi Singh had also described Yogi as his political guru.
7. Priyanka scolded over fake buses
Last year, Priyanka Gandhi had submitted a list of one thousand buses to the Yogi government to bring back the migrants during the Corona period, about which there was a lot of controversy. Aditi Singh also targeted Priyanka on this occasion. He had said that what was the need of such low level politics in this time of disaster? Sent a list of one thousand buses, out of which more than half of the buses are fake, 297 junk buses, 98 auto rickshaws and ambulances, 68 vehicles without paper, what kind of cruel joke is this? If there were buses, why were they not installed in Rajasthan, Punjab and Maharashtra. On this issue, Aditi had praised Yogi Adityanath for taking buses overnight to take the students home.
