Congress workers get into a fight at Indore, angered Jyotiraditya Scindia leaves event midway

Amid the growing uncertainty over the appointment of state Congress chief in Madhya Pradesh, Jyotiraditya Scindia visited the residences of several Congress leaders in Indore

Chaos erupted during senior Congress leader Jyotiraditya Scindia’s rally in Indore on Sunday when some Congress leaders failed to reach the former Guna MP and greet him during the meet due to a lack of space. A scuffle erupted between the workers as they jostled to reach the stage.

As per reports, during the chaos, some leaders fell off the podium which led to a fight between the workers of the Congress party. They began throwing chairs at each other and apparently, they resorted to trading blows with each other.

It is another instance of the remarkable lack of discipline within the ranks of the Congress party. Scindia, apparently, was so angered by the conduct of the workers of his party that he got off the stage and left the event midway.

Amid the growing uncertainty over the appointment of state Congress chief in Madhya Pradesh, Jyotiraditya Scindia visited the residences of several Congress leaders in Indore today. Scindia is being considered as a strong contender for the post. It is being speculated that he met the local party leaders to obtain their support for him.

Scindia is the chairman of the screening committee for the Assembly elections in the state, which are due later this year.

The Congress party isn’t alien to intra-party fights. In January, two groups of workers were involved in a clash during an event in Rajasthan. Apparently, the fight had broken out while Congress leader Vivek Bansal was taking ‘feedback’ from the workers about the Lok Sabha elections.

Earlier, two Congress MLAs from Karnataka got into a fight at Eagleton resort where they were staying, one ended up with head injuries that landed him in a hospital. Before the Rajasthan Assembly Elections, Congress workers had surrounded Sachin Pilot’s car and had protested violently against the ticket distribution as well.
