Sources say that Jyotiraditya Scindia has refused to heed to Kamal Nath’s request of looking after the state during the ongoing crisis.
Bengaluru: For Madhya Pradesh CM Kamal Nath, the fight to protect his government is only one side of the story.
While many MLAs from his government have gone missing, some touted to be in Haryana and some others in Bengaluru, Kamal Nath literally is staging a hard fight.
Again, Kamal Nath’s fight is not just external but internal as well.
Interestingly, Jyotiraditya Scindia, another strong Congressman in the state, has refused to help Kamal Nath sustain.
Sources tell us that Kamal Nath rang up Scindia and asked him to take care of the situation in the state, but he outright refused to do so.
On the issue of allegations being levelled by another Congress strongman Digvijaya Singh, Scindia said, “The Congress government has been made by the government. I do not have knowledge of these things. The Congress government is stable.”
The internal rift between Kamal Nath and Scindia is not a fresh one.
Just last month, he had openly rebelled against Kamal Nath in relation to farm loan waiver.
He had said, "It is impossible that Congress party makes a promise and does not fulfill it. If Congress has promised something then it is very important to fulfill it...nahi to sadak par utarna padega [otherwise we'll take to the streets]".
Well, Scindia has not minced words in criticising the CM several times.
Scindia had also hit out at the CM for not regularising guest teachers.
"I want to assure you that your demand is included in our government's manifesto and it is our sacred text. It has been a year for the government, teachers have to be a little patient. Our turn will come and if not then I assure you that I will be your shield and sword," Scindia said.
"If all promises in the manifesto are not fulfilled, do not think you are alone. Scindia will also hit the streets with you," Jyotiraditya Scindia had said further.
