New Delhi, March 12: The Madhya Pradesh Congress on Thursday took a dig at Jyotiraditya Scindia, who joined BJP on Wednesday, by pointing out that neither PM Modi nor Amit Shah posted a single tweet to welcome him in the party shows that “humiliation” of “maharaja”has begun.
Scindia will file his nomination for the Rajya Sabha elections on March 13. He is slated to arrive in Bhopal today.
“Not even a tweet by Narendra Modi ji or Amit Shah ji to welcome Scindia ji! Modiji, Shah ji, at least do not do it so soon! It has not even been 24 hours yet and you guys have already started humiliating him…!” Madya Pradesh Congress tweeted in Hindi.
Taking a jibe at Scindia, a scion of the erstwhile royal family of Gwalior who ended his 18-year-long association with the Congress party on a bitter note, the state Congress said: “He is a maharaja, the one whose history is often mentioned by Shivraj ji (former Madhya Pradesh chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan).”
