Reports have claimed that she might join the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), later in the day.
The former national spokesperson of the Congress party had hit the headlines after she welcomed Modi Government’s New Education Policy 2020. With her welcoming the NEP 2020, speculations were abuzz of her possibly joining the BJP, which she dismissed outright.
“My stand on NEP 2020 differs from my party and I apologize to Rahul Gandhi ji for that, but I rather speak the fact than be a head-nodding robot or a puppet. Everything is and cannot be about agreeing to your leader, but about being courageous to voice ur opinion bravely as a citizen”, she had tweeted then.
In another tweet, she had said that the new education policy has both positives and negatives and politics is not only about making noises, its also about working together. “@BJP4India @PMOIndia has to understand this. We as oppositions will look into it in detail and point out the flaws, its the GOI who has to take everyone in confidence n work on the flaws”, she had stated.
