In another sign of discord within the Congress’s Madhya Pradesh unit, veteran party leader from the state Jyotiraditya Scindia has come out in public supporting a minister of the state government who claimed that former chief minister Digvijaya Singh was operating a proxy government, reports India Today.
Scindia backed the minister, Umang Singhar, and said that the Kamal Nath government must not allow outsiders to interfere in its workings and should instead pay attention to what its ministers had to say.
"The issues raised by Umang Ji should have been paid attention to. The chief minister should listen to both the sides, talk to them and come to a solution," Scindia stated.
This is not the first time that Scindia has been openly critical of the party and refused to toe the official line. He had previously also come out in support of the government’s decision to end Jammu and Kashmir’s special status by abrogating Article 370.
