Scindia hurt and angry

RS seat also appears elusive


Jyotiraditya Scindia is the angry young man of the Congress Party. Circumstances for him have taken a U-turn. Once he was considered a chief ministerial candidate for Madhya Pradesh but Kamal Nath and Digvijay jointly turned the tables against him and Kamal Nath took over as Chief Minister. Scindia had been annoyed with the party high command for past some time. Rahul Gandhi took him to Shangrila Hotel for dinner the day after Kamal Nath took over the reins of the state. Sources disclosed that Scindia pointed out to Rahul, you call me your friend and you took me with you to campaign in MP every where and when the question of selecting the chief minister came up, you chose Kamal Nath. He asked Rahul, you are my friend or my foe. Rahul Gandhi consoled him by assuring that he will be appointed as the President of Madhya Pradesh Congress Committee. Scindia was also miffed over the point that his name as the state PCC Chief has not been announced. Then Sonia Gandhi took the matter in her own hands and called an important meeting between Kamal Nath and Scindia wherein it was decided that Scindia will be sent to the Rajya Sabha from the seat that is going to be vacant from Madhya Pradesh. Now there is talk of Priyanka being selected for that seat. Sources disclosed that Scindia knows that Kamal Nath and Digvijay Singh team will not allow him to be nominated by the party to Rajya Sabha, citing his recent anti-party behaviour. Scindia held a rally on the issue of loan waivers of farmers and recruitment of teachers and even claimed he will agitate against his own government if the demands are not fulfilled. “Let him do it,” was Kamal Nath’s answer to the threat. Wait and watch till April when the Rajya Sabha elections will be held and whether Scindia’s name appears in the list or not.
