Describing Digvijay and Kamal Nath as “big brother and younger brother’s Congress pair”, BJP MP Scindia said, “Like the 2018 assembly elections in the state, Digvijay is still behind the scenes. Kamal Nath’s remote control is still with Digvijay” Is on hand. “
Explain that the then Kamal Nath government fell on March 20 due to the resignation of 22 rebel MLAs of Congress under the leadership of Scindia to join the BJP. After this, the BJP returned to power on March 23 under the leadership of Shivraj Singh Chauhan.
Scindia and the rebel MLAs who had brought up with him six months ago, are being described as “traitors” by the Congress during the fast campaigning for the upcoming assembly by-elections.
The 49-year-old Scindia, a Rajya Sabha member, retorted, “Today they (Digvijay and Kamal Nath) are calling me traitor and Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chauhan unacceptable, but the truth is that the party which declared its manifesto during the last assembly elections was a scripture (Congress), after coming to power, betrayed seven and a half crore people of the state. “
Scindia said, “During the last assembly elections, he (Rahul Gandhi) had said that every farmer of the state will be forgiven within 10 days of the formation of the Congress government, but this promise was also not fulfilled.”
The BJP MP said, “I want to tell Digvijay and Kamal Nath that the Congress has betrayed the farmers, not with promise.” Scindia also alleged that the previous Kamal Nath government, instead of development, auctioned the state, drawing a big line of betrayal and corruption.
