While the Congress and other parties were busy with the affairs of Maharashtra, Congress leader Jyotiraditya Scindia caused a flutter in Madhya Pradesh by changing his Twitter profile. Scindia deleted all references to his party from his profile, including the fact that he is a former four-time Congress MP and a former minister in the UPA government.
The former MP from Guna changed his Twitter profile to say that he is just a ‘public servant and a cricket enthusiast’. His earlier profile read, “Former Member of Parliament, Guna (2002-19), former minister for power (I/C), MoS, commerce and industries, MoS communications, IT and Posts.”
Media interpreted this as a signal that Scindia was ready to walk out of the Congress and join the BJP. This speculation has been going on since Scindia’s outright support to the Centre’s decision to scrap Article 370 of the Constitution. The scion of the Scindia family, however, termed all these speculations as “baseless”.
