Prime News, National (Bhopal), November 25:- Congress leader Jyotiraditya Scindia has removed the party’s name from his Twitter bio. The bio now reads: “public servant and cricket enthusiast”.
This development comes in the wake of Scindia being denied the top post in Madhya Pradesh.
The supporters of Jyotiraditya Scindia have been pitching for him to be made party president in Madhya Pradesh, ever since Kamal Nath was made the Chief Minister.
The move has been scuttled by Digvijay Singh and Kamal Nath, both the leaders pushing for the Ajay Singh, son of late leader Arjun Singh for the post of Madhya Pradesh Congress President post, said a source.
Refuting the inevitable rumours that his change in the Twitter bio was a reflection of the strain in his relationship with the Congress Party, Scindia said, ” A month back I had changed my bio on Twitter. On people’s advice, I had made my bio shorter. Rumours regarding this are baseless.”
The younger lot, in the Grand Old Party, perceived to be close to Rahul Gandhi, have been disenchanted at the way of functioning with senior leaders mostly blocking their path.
Former Haryana Congress President Ashok Tanwar who left Congress has said that young leaders were being “politically finished” by the seniors.
The former royal of Gwalior, Scindia, had earlier resigned from the post of General Secretary after Rahul Gandhi resigned from the Congress President’s post. (MR, Inputs: Agencies).
