Mumbai: Former Congress spokesperson Priyanka Chaturvedi Friday joined the Shiv Sena.

Addressing a press conference with Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray, Chaturvedi said she left the Congress after being upset over reinstatement of party workers who misbehaved with her.

"It is not true that I quit the Congress after being denied Lok Sabha ticket," Chaturvedi said in response to a query.

Welcoming her in the party fold, Thackeray said Shiv Sena workers have got a "good sister" in Chaturvedi.

Chaturvedi was miffed at the reinstatement of some party workers in Uttar Pradesh who had "misbehaved" and "threatened" her during her press conference in Mathura a few days ago.

Chaturvedi had lashed out at the party in public on Thursday and accused it of giving preference to "lumpen goons" over those who had given their "sweat and blood" to the Congress.

She said it was unfortunate and saddening that those who threatened her have got away without even "a rap on their knuckles". The Congress, which suspended these workers, reinstated them on April 15.
