"A traitor is a traitor and no amount of arguments & reasoning can justify treachery. Period!" Pandhi said in a tweet on Tuesday.

Patwari made a reference to the 1857 war of independence and when Scindia's grandmother Vijayaraje Scindia won the Guna Lok Sabha seat as a Congress leader but switched to Jana Sangh in 1967. He added that on Tuesday, something similar might happen.
