Lucknow, 18 Oct 2019: Congress MLA from Rae Bareli Sadar Aditi Singh met Uttar Pradesh CM Yogi Adityanath on Thursday.
Though Congress leadership got furious, Aditi Singh prefers to call is as a mere courtesy visit. Singh said that she just discussed pending projects in her assembly constituency with the CM, as per several reports.
A report in the TOI quoted her as saying that since the chief minister had gone to meet public representatives routinely, she had gone to speak to him about pending development works.
Congress took swift action against the MLA and issue a notice against her. "People who think of their own interests and have no ideological stand can go elsewhere. We have issued a notice against her. If she doesn't reply, further action will be taken," news outlet ANI quoted the Congress state chief Ajay Kumar Lallu as saying.
This is not the first time that Aditi Singh has broken ranks. In August, she came out in support of the Article 370 move on Twitter. "United We Stand! Jai Hind #Article 370" she had written in a tweet.
