Ok I have to do this. I always had a keen interest in politics just had NO IDEA how to enter. Honestly, I never even thought I'd ever be a part of the system in anyway because which middle class person with NO political background or backing even gets here 🤷‍♀️

And then I came across NSUI elections. As it turns out, when @RahulGandhi as AICC GS became the in-charge of NSUI & IYC, he put his vision of opening up the system into practice.He wanted to open the doors of the Congress party to everyone - irrespective of anything.
So anyone could now join the system - irrespective of political background, financial status, gender, religion, caste, nothing mattered. NSUI also reserved positions for women & people belonging to SC & ST categories. And that's how I entered.

I have never spoken about this publicly. Back in 2014 after I appeared in a congress ad just before elections, the BJP ran an organized online attack against me. And I can't begin to express the kind of anxiety me and my family went through during that period.
They abused me, targetted my character, accused me of being involved in a 300Cr scam, said I had been to jail, tried to use the online campaign to file an FIR against me. I was a young girl, new in politics, not used to this. Although you probably never get used to this anyway.
It went on for weeks. Some trolls even morphed my face on pictures of women in bikinis, etc with text on them saying "ye hai Rahul Gandhi ka yuva josh" and what not. The phone wouldn't stop buzzing for days. It buzzed every second of every day.

Since we are talking about our inhuman govt's audacity to scam us during a national crisis, here's a few questions on the PM Cares fund. Thread.👇
Question 1: Why was a new fund created when the Prime Minister's National Relief Fund already has a balance of 38 billion rupees?
Question 2: Why is the PM Cares Fund not being audited by Comptroller and Auditor General of India (CAG)? What does this lack of transparency mean #BJPCoronaCorruption
