Aditi Singh, the rebel Congress MLA from Rae Bareli, seems to be going the Jyotiraditya Scindia way.
Aditi Singh, on Wednesday (27 May), changed her Twitter profile, removing Indian National Congress from it.
It may be recalled that just before switching over to the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Scindia had also dropped INC from his profile on social media.
Aditi Singh's profile now reads - "MLA Rae Bareli Sadar, Uttar Pradesh. Masters in Management Studies, Duke University. Forever trying to be a practitioner of Ayurveda, Yoga and Plant Based Living."
The MLA, since September last year, has been charting her own course - one that defies the Congress line.
She welcomed the abrogation of Article 370 in Kashmir at a time when the Congress was opposing the move. She then defied the party line to attend a special assembly session in UP in October.
Aditi Singh has been regularly praising Prime Minister (PM) Narendra Modi and UP Chief Minister (CM) Yogi Adityanath from time to time.
The Congress has already filed a petition seeking her disqualification from the membership of the state assembly for alleged anti-party activities. However, no action has yet been taken on the petition.
More recently, Aditi Singh slammed the Congress for sending buses for migrant workers and appreciated the work being done by the Yogi government for migrants.
Speculations are rife that Aditi Singh may soon join the BJP and is likely to be named as the party candidate from Rae Bareli in the 2024 Lok Sabha elections.
