After the formal induction of Jyotiraditya Scindia into the BJP, former Madhya Pradesh chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan took to Twitter to welcome the former Congress leader into the party.
The veteran BJP leader Shivraj Singh Chouhan took to Twitter to welcome the ‘Maharaj’ (Jyotiraditya Scindia) and to let him know that he is with him. He assured Scindia his continual support. “Swagat hain Maharaj, saath hain Shivraj” (Welcome Maharaj (Scindia), Shivraj is with you), read the BJP leader’s latest Tweet in Hindi.
स्वागत है महाराज, साथ है शिवराज। @JM_Scindia— Shivraj Singh Chouhan (@ChouhanShivraj) March 11, 2020
Moreover, while talking to reporters here after Scindia joined the BJP in presence of party president J P Nadda in Delhi, Chouhan also defended Scindia’s decision to leave the Congress. “The disgruntlement of Maharaj (Scindia) with the Congress is justified,” the BJP leader said.
“This is a joyous day for BJP and me personally. Today, I remember Rajmata Scindia. Jyotiraditya Scindia has become a member of the BJP family. The entire family is with BJP. They have a tradition where politics is a medium to serve people,” Chouhan was quoted as saying by PTI.
Once seen as one of Rahul Gandhi’s closest aides, Jyotiraditya Scindia, ditched the Congress party, leaving its government in Madhya Pradesh in chaos on Tuesday afternoon. His resignation, along with that of 21 MLAs, has left the Kamal Nath government in the state on the brink of collapse. It is currently five MLAs short of the new majority mark of 104.
