Bengaluru: Abrogation of articles 370 and 35A last year was the death-knell of terrorism in Jammu and Kashmir. 

The Modi-led central government took this extremely harsh and courageous decision to integrate the erstwhile state with the rest of India. 

But the Congress and its coterie continue to oppose this move. 

However, a few Congressmen themselves have thrown their weight behind Narendra Modi for the phenomenal move. 

One of these brave souls happens to be the newest entrant to the BJP – Jyotiraditya Scindia! 

Sources tell us that during the time of abrogation, Jyotiraditya Scindia phoned one of his close friends and expressed his dismay over Congress’s opposition to the abrogation and even termed it “nonsensical”. He even wondered how Congress could oppose this move when it was much needed. 

It is further added that he and his friend decided to speak about their disgruntlement over the decision in a public manner, but it did not fructify. 

In fact, it is at this crucial juncture that Scindia asserted to himself that there was no future in the Congress. It is then that he decided to have a life outside the Congress. 

And all the other developments like denial of PCC post, MP CM post should only be superficialities. What hurt him the most was the Congress’s strategy in opposing the PM. 

Many others also believe that Congress’s opposition for the CAA is also baseless. Though the Congress has managed to drum up massive support through its orchestrated protests across the country,

its own senior leaders like Kapil Sibal have openly confessed that the states have no rights not to implement any law enacted by the Indian Parliament. 

Another point to take cognisance is AICC chief Sonia Gandhi’s insistence that her son Rahul Gandhi should be at the top. It is this that is being speculated as the reason why Scindia was not given a

Rajya Sabha seat, for she feared Scindia would easily eclipse her son and take all the credits.
