Scindia's remarks on Congress

As he joined the saffron party, after serving the Congress for 18 years, Scindia extended his regards to BJP president Nadda, PM Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah, and targeted the grand old party. While Nadda welcomed him to the party, saying that he is joining his family, Scindia stated that Congress is not doing Jan Seva (public service) anymore.

Speaking to media after being inducted in BJP, he said: "Congress party is not the same as it was before. Three reasons - they are not realising the fact, they are not ready to accept the new leadership and they are ignoring the young leaders." Scindia went on to say that the Madhya Pradesh government has betrayed the people.
