A day after Madhya Pradesh Congress leader Jitu Patwari met the ‘rebel’ Congress leaders in Bengaluru to convince them to come back, he was found praising the Prime Minister on Twitter.
Indian stock market halted trading for 45 minutes during the early session on Friday after both the benchmark indices Sensex and Nifty hit their lower circuit limits. However, after the major free-fall, in the best intra-day recovery, the BSE Sensex recovered more than 5000 points from its intra-day low of 29,388.97, while Nifty also recovered 1600 points from the low of 8555.15.
News agency ANI took to Twitter to share the changes in the BSE Sensex levels. It reported that as of 12.34 PM the Sensex was up 740.82 points, at 33,518.96.
While this extreme market volatility left some investors jittery while others, excited, it surely left Congress leader Jitu Patwari extremely enthused. As the Sensex zoomed, the Congress leader, took to Twitter to point out how with PM Modi, even this is possible now! “Modi hain toh mumkin hain”, tweeted the Madhya Pradesh Cabinet Minister of Higher Education, Sports and Youth Affairs.
This unanticipated reaction, where a Congress loyalist is praising PM Modi, has left the netizens bewildered. Owing to the high octane political drama in Madhya Pradesh, where 22 MLAs have ditched the Congress party leaving the Kamal Nath government on the brink of collapse, many people on Twitter contemplated whether Jitu Patwari is also planning to jump the ship.
Is he next? https://t.co/XlPX5Gh3qc— Nitesh Dubey 🇮🇳 (@Niteshfearless) March 13, 2020
A Twitter user was steadfast in welcoming the Congress leader into BJP.
Welcome to BJP 🤭 https://t.co/5Yew3buMuw— Omkar Shetty🇮🇳 (@omkar_shettyg) March 13, 2020
And there was another netizen who mocked Kamal Nath of losing one more loyalist.
The crisis in Madhya Pradesh has deepened on Tuesday after Jyotiraditya Scindia resigned from Congress and at least 22 MLAs close to him have announced to withdraw support from the Kamal Nath government. Former Union Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia on Wednesday joined the BJP in the presence of party chief JP Nadda. He will now be contesting the upcoming Rajya Sabha elections.
It may be noted nearly 19 rebel Congress MLAs, close to newly inducted BJP leader Jyotiraditya Scindia has been staying in Bengaluru, which had triggered a political crisis in Madhya Pradesh where the Kamal Nath government has become a minority.
