Future of India is safe in the hands of PM Modi, Congress failed to fulfil key promises: newly-inducted BJP leader Jyotiraditya Scindia

"I am saddened with the situation in Congress. Congress is no longer the party that it used to be", Scindia said

Four-time MP and former Union Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia, who has resigned from Congress, joined the BJP in presence of party chief JP Nadda on Wednesday.

After joining the BJP in the presence of BJP President JP Nadda and other senior leaders, Scindia speaking to the media said, “In my life, only two dates have always been important. The first is 30th September 2001 when I lost my father. That was a day when my life changed, and with that, the second date is 10th March 2020.”

Jyotiraditya Scindia further added that he had always believed that social service should be our objective. Politics should be a means to fulfil that, nothing more than that, he added.

“I am saddened with the situation in Congress. Congress is no longer the party that it used to be. It rejects reality. In Madhya Pradesh, we had a dream when we formed the government there in 2018. But in 18 months, those dreams have been destroyed,” said the four-time MP Jyotiraditya Scindia.  

Attacking the Congress party and Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath, Jyotiraditya Scindia said that the Congress government failed to follow through on key promises it made during the 2018 assembly election such as the farm loan waiver, providing unemployment allowance.

He added, “Our Prime Minister Narendra Modi has got not once, but twice a mandate like no other. The way PM Modi has worked, I feel that the future of India is safe in the hands of PM Modi. He has worked with a vision. I would like to thank Nadda ji for presenting me with this platform. I am hopeful that I will get an opportunity to serve the people. I am excited to work on the path shown by PM Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah.”

Speaking on the induction of Jyotiraditya Scindia to the party, BJP President JP Nadda welcomed the former Congress minister and said it was a matter of happiness for the BJP. Remembering Rajmata Vijaya Raje Scindia, Nadda said, “I am remembering Rajmata Scindia ji who played a key role in Jana Sangh and BJP’s foundation. It is a matter of pride that her grandson Jyotiraditya Scindia is joining the BJP. I welcome him to the party.”

“Today is a day of happiness for us that her grandson, Jyotiraditya has joined the BJP. BJP is a very democratic party where every individual has a say and has got his own contribution to developing the party. I am sure he will get the opportunity to participate in the development of the party,” BJP President JP Nadda added.

Jyotiraditya Scindia walked out of Congress along with 22 state legislators, pushing the Congress-led government in Madhya Pradesh on the brink of collapse. Scindia had posted his resignation letter on Twitter minutes after meeting Prime Minister Narendra Modi along with Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Tuesday morning.
