Madhya Pradesh: Swords drawn between Digvijaya Singh and Jyotiraditya Scindia over candidate selection

A committee comprising of Ashok Gehlot, Veerappa Moily and Ahmed Patel has reportedly been constituted to resolve the matter.

According to reports, senior leaders of the Congress party, Digvijaya Singh and Jyotiraditya Scindia have been involved in a verbal spat over the selection of candidates for the upcoming Madhya Pradesh assembly elections. Congress spokesperson Shobha Oza, however, has denied claims of infighting and blamed BJP’s dirty tricks and propaganda instead for such claims.

As per reports, a committee comprising of Ashok Gehlot, Veerappa Moily and Ahmed Patel has been constituted to resolve the matter. Scindia is the chief of the campaign committee of the Madhya Pradesh Congress while Digvijaya Singh is the coordination committee chief for the Madhya Pradesh assembly election.

Congress has been deeply troubled by the infighting with its party ranks. Earlier, a poster war had emerged between Scindia and Kamal Nath, another prospective Congress Chief Ministerial candidate in the state. Congress had blamed the BJP for their internal squabble then as well. Scindia had again triggered a factional war within the party in September after declaring the Scindia family to be the only alternative to Shivraj Singh Chouhan in Madhya Pradesh.
