Congress welcomes Geeta Koda into party, wife of Madhu Koda who was convicted for corruption

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.

BJP was quick to react on Geeta Koda joining the Congress party.

Preeti Gandhi, who is the National In-charge of Social Media for Mahila Morcha asserted that this was “typically Congress”.

The Delhi BJP IT Cell incharge also lashed out at Congress.

Congress leader Alamgir Alam said, “She was interested in joining Congress fold for quite some time now. Today she was welcomed to the party by Rahul ji and other senior leaders”.

Geeta Koda won from Jagannathpur in 2014 on a Jai Bharath Samantha Party ticket and has had two back to back stints in the Jharkhan assembly.
