New Delhi, March 9
BJP leader Jyotiraditya Scindia on Tuesday hit back at Congress leader Rahul Gandhi’s “would have become CM” remark, saying he wished Gandhi was as concerned when he was in the Congress as he was now.
Gandhi had told his party’s youth wing leaders that had Scindia remained in the Congress he would have certainly become chief minister but was now a “backbencher” in the BJP, according to sources.
The former Congress chief said he had told Scindia so, but “he chose a different path” by joining the BJP, where he can never be chief minister.
Asked about the remarks, Scindia told PTI, “I wish Rahul Gandhi was as concerned when I was in the Congress as he is now.”
Scindia had left the Congress along with some legislators loyal to him to join the BJP last year. This had led to the fall of the Kamal Nath-led Congress government in Madhya Pradesh. PTI
