Scindia said that the Congress made a promise to the people of the state. Rahul Gandhi promised that if the Congress government comes to Madhya Pradesh, the loans of farmers up to two lakh rupees will be forgiven in 10 days, if not, the Chief Minister will be replaced on the 11th day. But the debts were not forgiven.
Scindia said that he gave the Congress government 26 seats from Gwalior-Chambal for strengthening and development, but corruption continued instead of development.
He said, “I am a servant of the public like my grandmother and father, not a servant of the chair.” If I had been a servant of the chair, I would have accepted it when I was offered to become the Deputy Chief Minister. But I knew that the people who are sitting in the government are going to destroy the state and I did not want to take the burden on myself. ”Scindia alleged that Kamal Nath closed Vallabh Bhavan (ministry) to the public. Had done it. Only contractors and traders could go. The Chief Minister did not have time for ministers, MLAs. The Congress had made Vallabh Bhavan a den of corruption.
