Yashodhara Raje Scindia, sister of the late Madhavrao Scindia and aunt to Jyotiraditya Scindia, has expressed her happiness at her nephew’s resignation from the Congress party and congratulated him on his ‘Gharwapsi’. Yashodhara Raje said that Jyotiraditya Scindia was being neglected in the Congress party. Jyotiraditya Scindia is also the grandson of the late Rajmata of Gwalior, Vijaya Raje Scindia, one of the co-founders of the Bharatiya Janata Party and was active in the BJP’s predecessor Jana Sangh for decades prior to that.

बड़े भाई स्वर्गीय श्री माधवराव सिंधिया जी की जयंती पर उन्हें कोटिशः वंदन। रिश्तों की पाठशाला में भाई-बहन ही पहले ऐसे सहपाठी होते हैं जो जीवन के हर पड़ाव पर हमेशा सुख-दुःख के साथी होते हैं। दादा, आपकी कमी जीवन में हमेशा बनी रहेगी।— Vasundhara Raje (@VasundharaBJP) March 10, 2020
Jyotiriaditya Scindia, the scion of the Scindia Dynasty, has resigned from the Congress party after rifts widened between him and Chief Minister Kamal Nath. The Congress government in Madhya Pradesh is on the verge of collapse after nearly 20 MLAs resigned following Scindia’s lead. There is also the possibility of more leaders following suit.
It is reported that Scindia may soon join the BJP. Reports say that he may be elected to the Rajya Sabha on a BJP ticket. With Scindia and several Congress MLAs resigning, the Kamal Nath government may fall anytime.
