The Congress in Madhya Pradesh is witnessing chaos after Scindia's departure, and those leaders, who have any say in the Congress, have also started leaving the party.
Congress state unit secretary Sunil Tiwari has written a letter to party's interim president Sonia Gandhi, saying "some leaders have made the Congress their private institution and when Scindia took up this issue and started objecting in the interests of the party and the workers, he was suppressed.
"The result is in front of the party." Tiwari, who has been associated with the Congress for the last 32 years, also resigned from the primary membership of the Congress.
