On Monday, 25 April, reports emerged that professional boxer and politician Vijender Singh is likely to leave Congress, with rumours suggesting that he is bound to join the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) in Haryana.

However, the 36-year-old seems to have put an end to those rumours when he posted a picture with the general secretary of the All India Congress Committee in-charge of Uttar Pradesh, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, on his Twitter account on Monday, with the caption reading, "It was wonderful conversing with dynamic leader @priyankagandhi ji who is doing so much for the betterment of the youth. Her progressive approach can help us gain newer heights."

Singh had joined mainstream politics just before the 2019 general election and contested from South Delhi on behalf of the Congress party, but he wasn't victorious.

He became the first Indian boxer to win an Olympic medal in the 2008 Beijing Olympics and has won multiple other medals at the Commonwealth Games.
