Senior Congress leader, Dr Ajoy Kumar tweeted on 11th October welcoming Geeta Koda to the party. He tweeted a picture where Dr Ajoy Kumar and Rahul Gandhi were seen posing with Geeta Koda.

Geeta Koda, who is now being warmly welcomed to the party, is the wife of Madhu Koda, the former chief minister of Jharkhand who is now in jail, convicted of criminal conspiracy, cheating and corruption in a coal block allocation case. In 2017, Madhu Koda was sentenced to three years in prison. He was convicted for accepting huge bribes for allotting iron ore and coal mining contracts in Jharkhand. It is also alleged that Madhu Koda and his associates laundered staggering Rs 3,356 crore.
