See why BJP wants Jyotiraditya Scindia to stay true to his promise and change his name

Madhya Pradesh Congress has been in news because of infighting between leaders like Kamal Nath, Digvijaya Singh and Jyotiraditya Scindia. 

Many Twitter users today were tweeting with ‘#NaamBadloMaharaj‘ hashtag and we got a little curious. Believing that Congress President Rahul Gandhi, who in popular parlance referred to as ‘Yuvraj’ has been elevated to Maharaj, we clicked on the tag. The top tweet was from BJP Madhya Pradesh official account.

The video contained a clip from NDTV where the reporter is asking Congress leader Jyotiraditya Scindia’s comment on Kamal Nath’s communal statement. As per video that has gone viral on social media, Kamal Nath, while addressing a gathering had said that it will be a big loss to Congress if 90% of Muslims don’t vote for Congress.

Scindia had refuted the claims that Kamal Nath would have never said such a thing. “If Kamal Nath ji has said this, that if 90% Muslims don’t vote for us, it will be a big loss to us, I am ready to change my name,” Scindia could be heard saying. He refused to believe that Kamal Nath had said the above words. In the video shared by BJP Madhya Pradesh, from 00:37 onward, Kamal Nath could be heard saying the exact thing.

This is why twitterati wants Scindia to keep his promise and change his name. #NaamBadloMaharaj was a dig at his royalty roots since he is the grandson of Jivajirao Scindia, the last Maharaja of the princely state of Gwalior and son of Madhavrao Scindia, the last titular Maharaja of Gwalior.

Amusingly, this is not the first time Scindia has been caught brimming with overconfidence. In 2015 interview after the Delhi Assembly elections, Scindia was speaking about how Rahul Gandhi has brought about a change. India TV’s Rajat Sharma pointed out how the then Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi was caught on camera copying the condolence message at the Nepal embassy when he went to express solidarity with the earthquake victims.

In the above video, from 02:47 onward, Scindia says Rahul Gandhi is ready to bring about a change. When Sharma points out that he was copying the condolence message, Scindia brazens it out and asks for proof.

He then claims how the media misinterprets things. Sharma, then shows him the clip. Despite the fact that Rahul Gandhi is seen touching his mobile phone screen so that it doesn’t get locked and he could copy the message easily, Scindia stood his ground.

Madhya Pradesh Congress has been in news because of infighting between leaders like Kamal Nath, Digvijaya Singh and Jyotiraditya Scindia. The states of Madhya Pradesh will go to poll on November 28 and the results will be announced on December 11, 2018.
