New Delhi: After the resignation of Kapil Sibal from Cngress, leader Jitin Prasada, who came to BJP from Congress last year, has taunted him while retweeting an old tweet of his on Wednesday. Jitin Prasada joined BJP in the year 2021, Sibal had targeted Jitin and said that his joining BJP is ‘Politics of Prasad’. Sibal had also said that he may consider leaving the party even if the Congress at some point in his life considered him completely useless. Apart from this, Sibal had also questioned the ideology of Jitin.
On June 10, 2021, when Jitin Prasada joined BJP, Kapil Sibal had tweeted, “Jitin Prasada joins BJP. The question is will he get ‘prasada’ from BJP or is he just a ‘catch’ for UP elections? In such deals if ‘ideology’ doesn’t matter changeover is easy”. Jitin Prasad has now taunted Sibal while replying to this tweet. Prasad has written- “How’s the ‘Prasad’ Mr Sibal.”

There was talk of Kapil Sibal going to the Rajya Sabha from Jharkhand’s JMM quota, but on Wednesday, when he filed his nomination for the Rajya Sabha, SP chief Akhilesh Yadav was with him. Later Akhilesh told that Sibal will go to Rajya Sabha on one of the three SP seats.
According to the information, Sibal had represented senior Samajwadi Party leader Azam Khan in the Supreme Court. Azam Khan was released on interim bail by the Supreme Court after two years in jail.
Senior politician Kapil Sibal, who has been with the Congress for nearly 30 years and continuously questioned the leadership of the Gandhi family for the last two years, has quit the Congress on 16 May. After the Congress’s Chintan Shivir in Udaipur, a weak bond broke between Sibal and the Gandhi family and he also joined the list of leaders who were once strong pillars of the Congress.
