Congress on Friday expelled Barkha Shukla Singh from the party, a day after she attacked Rahul Gandhi and senior leader Ajay Maken.

In one of the swiftest actions witnessed in the Congress, Singh was sacked on Thursday evening within hours of her declaring Rahul “unfit” to lead the party. Singh, who was the president of the Delhi unit of the Mahila Congress, had released pictures of Rahul having dinner at a restaurant with some friends last month.

The Disciplinary Action Committee of the Delhi unit of the Congress met Friday morning to unanimously decided to expel Singh from the party for indulging in “anti-party activities” ahead of the elections to the municipal corporations in the capital.

Singh, who had complained against “neglect” of women workers in ticket distribution for the Sunday's civic polls, alleged that the party workers were “snubbed” and their grievances were not addressed.

On Thursday, Singh had insisted that she was not quitting the party but only her post -- President of the Delhi unit of Mahila Congress.
