Madhya Pradesh crisis: 22 Congress MLAs resign, including 6 ministers

Scindia wanted to contest from the first seat as it would have ensured his comfortable victory to Rajya Sabha. The second seat would have been an uphill task for the grand old party.

Following the resignation of Jyotiraditya Scindia from the Congress Party, Madhya Pradesh has been at the epicentre of a political drama. 22 Congress MLAs have also resigned from the party.

They include the likes of Manoj Choudhary, Hardeep Singh Dang, Rajyavardhan Singh, Brajendra Singh Yadav, Jaspal Jajji, Suresh Dhakad, Jaswant Jatav, Santram Sironia, Munnalal Goyal, Ranveer Singh Jatav, OPS Bhadoria, Kamlesh Jatav, Giriraj Dandotiya, Raghuraj Kansana, Aidalsingh Kansana, and Biasahulal Singh.

Six Ministers, namely, Tulsi Silawat, Govind Singh Rajput, Dr Prabhuram Choudhry, Imarti Devi, Pradyumna Singh Tomar, and Mahendra Singh Sisodia also resigned from the cabinet.

Scindia’s decision that catapulted into the Madhya Pradesh crisis in a way seems predictable too. He has been brutally sidelined after the MP assembly elections. Despite his efforts and popularity, the CM’s chair was given to Kamal Nath. Reports have also stated that both Scindia and Sachin Pilot, being strong and dynamic leaders with immense popularity in their states, are seen as ‘competitions’ for Congress prince Rahul Gandhi.

Reportedly, the reason behind the resignation of Scindia has to do with the upcoming Rajya Sabha elections. The Congress party could not decide on its candidates due to the pressure tactics employed by Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister, Kamal Nath and Digvijaya Singh.

As per a report in Outlook, Scindia wanted to contest from the first seat as it would have ensured his comfortable victory to Rajya Sabha. The second seat would have been an uphill task for the grand old party.

Addressing a rally at Kudila village near Prithvipur in February, Jyothiraditya Scindia said that he would hit the streets if the Congress party’s manifesto was not fulfilled in the state. Scindia made these promises as he expressed solidarity with contract teachers, who were agitating against the state government demanding regularisation.

Scindia’s threats to Chief Minister Kamal Nath came after Madhya Pradesh Congress government admitted its own failure to deliver the tall promises of farm loan waiver made by their supremo Rahul Gandhi during the Assembly elections campaign in 2018.

Earlier, the change in his Twitter bio created quite a furore over the Internet some time back. Netizens started speculating that the missing ‘Congress’ from the bio may have more than what meets the eye. However, all doubts were put to rest, when Scindia had clarified that he had changed his Twitter bio a month back and not in recent past.
