Madhya Pradesh Congress Twitter account has a prolonged meltdown after Scindia quits, gives a veiled death threat

Perhaps now is the good time for Congress to rise above its pettiness and move on with whatever dignity that is left.

While Congress leaders and supporters have not held back expressing their disappointment over Jyotiraditya Scindia quitting the Grand Old Party to join the BJP, Madhya Pradesh Congress state unit is still not over. Like a jilted psychotic lover, the party’s official social media account has been constantly sly-tweeting and also giving out what seems like veiled death threats.

In a now-deleted tweet, Madhya Pradesh Congress account juxtaposed images of the family from Burari which died under mysterious circumstances in July 2018 with that of Jyotiraditya Scindia joining the BJP.

In the tweet, MP Congress compared Scindia’s joining the BJP as ‘Burari-like incident’. “To obtain moksha, 11 members of family in Burari committed suicide. In hope of better future, Jyotiraditya Scindia joined the BJP. Both the unfortunate incidents will have same fate,” MP Congress said. It is imperative to mention here that Jyotiraditya Scindia’s father, Madhavrao Scindia, who was sidelined for party presidentship to let Sonia Gandhi take reins, died in 2001 in a mysterious aircraft crash.

Earlier in the day, MP Congress had listed out a number of posts the party had given to Scindia and questioned him on quitting the party and going to Modi and Shah.

One could almost imagine Bollywood rich ‘maalik’ getting angry at their ‘naukar’ and calling him ‘ehsaan faramosh’ at the end of the above rant. Congress conveniently skipped the part where Scindia was sidelined to make way for Kamal Nath as MP Chief Minister and that he was later made General Secretary in UP (West) where Congress has hardly any presence.

Upping its ante, MP Congress then resorted to melancholic poetry. Within minutes of this sad, grief-stricken poetry, Congress chose to let Scindia know that his fate might be similar to that of the Burari family. For the uninitiated, in July 2018, 11 members of the same family were found dead mysteriously. While some believe they died while carrying out a ‘ritual’ to attain ‘moksha’, some family members believe foul play.

Later, MP Congress reminded how ‘Maharaj’, as Scindia is called fondly because of his royal lineage, was living with respect in Congress but will now be a ‘chowkidar’.

Ahead of 2019 General Elections, the then Congress President Rahul Gandhi, in a volley of attack on PM Modi over the Rafale deal would chant ‘Chowkidar chor hai’ (the guard is the thief). However, unperturbed by the attack, PM Modi made it into his campaign and insisted he is a Chowkidar and thousands of people joined him in his campaign, calling themselves one too. Taking a dig at the same, MP Congress taunted Scindia that the ‘Maharaj is now a Chowkidar’.

“The one who lived with pride as a Maharaj in Congress is now happy joining the ranks of a chowkidar. While there was noise that Modi or Shah will join him when he becomes a party member but it was only Nadda and VD Sharma who welcomed you,” MP Congress tweeted. JP Nadda is BJP National President while Sharma is a BJP MP representing Khajuraho constituency.

Even later in the night, MP Congress put out an ironic tweet.

MP Congress suggested that one should be a supporter, not a ‘bhakt’ or a ‘slave’. Do note that Congress leaders have constantly maintained that only Rahul Gandhi is good enough to be the party president. This despite the fact that the party has faced humiliating defeat in 2019 general elections under him and it now struggling for relevance. The irony of Congress dishing out gyaan on ‘ghulami’ is staggering.

Continuing the rant on Thursday as well, three days after Scindia very politely bid his goodbye to the party he was with for 18 years, MP Congress taunted him that neither PM Modi nor HM Amit Shah have tweeted to welcome him to the BJP.

“Modi/Shah ji, please do not be in such a hurry! It has not even been 24 hours and you people have started insulting him. Maharaj, the same Maharaj whose family history even Shivraj ji talks about,” MP Congress tweeted. It is imperative to mention that before Scindia made his resignation to Sonia Gandhi public, he had met the Prime Minister at his residence along with Home Minister Amit Shah.

Perhaps now is the good time for Congress to rise above its pettiness and move on with whatever dignity that is left.
