An indication that the Congress party has abandoned all hope can be seen in the mannerisms of its General Secretary in Uttar Pradesh and senior leader from Madhya Pradesh, Jyotiraditya Scindia. As per reports, he has taken off on a vacation to the US, even as 8 Lok Sabha constituencies are yet to go to polls in Madhya Pradesh.
The last phase of the 2019 General Elections are only 2 days away. The mood in the ruling and the opposition camps could not have been more different at this point. While the BJP has been asserting confidently on a consistent basis that they will secure more seats than in 2014, the Congress party has conceded that it has no problem if Rahul Gandhi does not become the Prime Minister.
The fate of 14 seats in Uttar Pradesh and 8 in Madhya Pradesh will be decided on the 19th of May. Under such circumstances, Scindia’s absence could only be explained by the assumptions that either the Congress has given up already or he has not forgiven the party high command for denying him the post of Chief Minister in MP.
Normally, such conduct is usually expected from Rahul Gandhi who is still in India. However, the Congress President has used such tactics only to recover from the stress of election campaigns after results have been declared. It appears Jyotiraditya Scindia has gone two steps further.
