"When Amma  (Jyotiraditya's grandmother) had sent Dada (Madhavrao Scindia) to Oxford, he returned first to Jan Sangh. That combination of Amma and Dada in Jan Sangh - I have no words. Then during Emergency, Dada had said we have a lot to lose, so I must go. He said I have my family and must protect them. I think that Shivraj Chouhan and PM Modi with Amit Shah have decided a big role for him," she said to Republic TV.
