A week after the then Congress spokesperson Priyanka Chaturvedi took a dig on Union Minister Smriti Irani after breaking into an impromptu song parodising Irani’s popular show ‘Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi’, Chaturvedi has abandoned the sinking ship called Congress to join hands with the Shiv Sena, an NDA ally and a party which is in opposition to her former party Congress.
Chaturvedi today met Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray and held a joint press conference where he welcomed her into the party. Addressing the media, Chaturvedi said that she knows she would be held accountable for her views she had held when she was a Congress spokesperson, when she did not quite hold back on abuses against the BJP as well as Shiv Sena, but says she thought long before joining the Shiv Sena.
Chaturvedi thanked the Thackerays for welcoming her in the ‘family’. Except, just a few months back she didn’t quite have kind things to talk about ‘the family’ she just joined.
Someone nominated by Bal Thackeray as Shiv Sena MP should talk about the BMC loot by his party before pointing at others. #Sly

The price of compromise to stay in power, BJP gives away Mumbai Mayor’s Bungalow, a heritage property, for Bal Thackeray memorial.

As Chaturvedi herself sang, rishon ke bhi roop badalte hai… (the forms of relationships change). In politics, perhaps, there are no permanent enemies and no permanent friends.
