Mr. Gandhi had said that Mr. Scindia would never be made CM by the BJP, and now he would be a backbencher.
BJP leader and Rajya Sabha member Jyotiraditya Scindia retaliated on Tuesday on former Congress chief Rahul Gandhi’s remarks that Mr Scindia would never be made chief minister by the BJP and would now be a backbencher.
He said, ‘I talk about Rahul’s concernYes It is expressed when I was in Congress. I would not say anything more than this.
Mr. Gandhi made this remark while addressing the National Executive of the Indian Youth Congress (IYC) in the capital on Monday. “He [Mr. Scindia] He would have become the Chief Minister, who used to be with the Congress, but has lagged behind in the BJP. He could work with activists to strengthen the organization. I told him that “one day you will become the Chief Minister” but he chose another way, “a source quoted Mr. Gandhi as saying. He said, “Write it down, he will never become Chief Minister.” He appealed to the members of the IYC to try tirelessly, “whoever comes to the party or whoever leaves”.
The fall of Kamal Nath-led government
Last March, Mr. Scindia entered the BJP from the Congress, along with 22 of his supporters, who were MLAs in the Madhya Pradesh Legislative Assembly, led to the downfall of the Kamal Nath-led government.
Both Mr. Scindia and Mr. Gandhi were considered close friends at one time, carefully avoiding sharp words against each other.
While the BJP leader refused to comment on Gandhism, the Congress leader only said that [Mr Scindia] He was not given such an honor in the Congress.
The Congress’ choice of chief ministers after winning assembly elections in MP, Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh in December 2018, mirrored the party’s old patron versus the young Turk Dal.
Although Mr. Gandhi was the party president, Mr. Scindia and his chief ministerial preference for Sachin Pilot for Rajasthan were “vetoed” by senior leaders with the support of his mother and incumbent Congress chief, Sonia Gandhi.
Wary of the politics of the background of the time, Pankaj Chaturvedi, a former Congress spokesperson in Madhya Pradesh and a Scindia loyalist, lashed out at Mr. Gandhi. “Rahul ji, you already have these 3 options. Who can be the Chief Minister @SachinPilot in rajasthan @TS_SinghDeo ji in Chhattisgarh and @sherryontopp in Punjab. @RahulGandhi sir when doing this, ”he tweeted.
