Politics intensifies as Scindia’s name crops up for MP Congress President
31st August 2019
Bhopal, August 31, 2019 (Muslim Saleem): Politics has intensified with the name of National General Secretary Jyotiraditya Scindia coming forward for the new president of the state Congress. On Friday, CM Kamal Nath met Sonia Gandhi in New Delhi and discussed about the new state president. After meeting the party high command, Nath said in a discussion with the media that I have been asking for six months to be made the new president, when I became the CM, I was asked to continue till the Lok Sabha elections. After this, I have repeated this thing again today. When Nath was asked about Scindia’s displeasure, he made it clear that I do not think he is angry. Meanwhile, his supporters have mobilized from Bhopal to Delhi to make Scindia the state president. On behalf of the Scindia faction, the new name for the post of president has come from senior minister Prabhuram Chaudhary. Digvijay’s name also in the discussion … Meeting held at Ajay Singh’s house: Two days ago more than 10 MLAs including Digvijay Singh, Govind Singh met Ajay Singh at his bungalow. However, the political discussion behind all this was that Digvijay was also involved in the race for the post of president. The pro-Scindia mobilized Jatav said – with Scindia in every decision Tomar, Rajput also came up: MLA Kamlesh Jatav said that if Scindia is not made the president, there will be serious consequences. We will stay with them for the decisions they take. When Kamal Nath became president, it was Scindia’s consent and today if he is CM, he is with his consent. Minister Pradyuman Singh Tomar said that Scindia does not run for the post, the post runs after him. Workers want them to become president. Govind Singh Rajput also said the same thing. Old video in discussion … An old video of Scindia also went viral on social media, which was in the news. In this they are saying that… ‘The insistence of thunderstorms is where the power to fall, we also have the stubbornness to make the same desires. It is necessary to hit the principles. If alive, it is necessary to look alive. ‘ (Scindia has said this on several occasions before. This video is being told as old.) The decision of the first state in-charge will be decided …. Congress sources say that the central leadership of the Congress wants to make the new state in-charge first, followed by the president. The names of former Maharashtra Chief Minister Ashok Chavan and former minister Mukul Wasnik have come to the state in-charge. At the same time, there is confusion about the new chairman. The names of Congress leaders Jyotiraditya Scindia, Digvijay Singh, Ajay Singh are already named for this post. Apart from this, the name of pro-Nath Home Minister Bala Bachchan is also in the race. At the same time, the name of Higher Education Minister Jeetu Patwari and Forest Minister Umang Singhar are also in the discussion. Among the Scindia supporters, former minister Ramnivas Rawat was already named, the new name has been added to that of Minister Prabhuram Chaudhary.
Scindia is a member of the team of Sonia and Rahul Gandhi. The news of his displeasure is unfounded. I am a small party worker. I have reached here while working for the party. I am never in the race for state president.
Bala Bachchan, Home Minister
Scindia’s stature is much higher than that of the state president. They will get the position they want, they will not need any claim.
Sajjan Singh Verma, Public Works Minister
Everyone has the right to speak for the state president. Whoever becomes the state president will take everyone along.
Jeetu Patwari, Higher Education Minister
Lakhon Singh said – Patwari became president
Minister Lakhan Singh Yadav has advocated for Patwari to be the state president. He said that even though the Congress may have formed the government, the organization is still weak. The Congress needs a struggling and hard working state president.
