Jyotiraditya Scindia-Kamal Nath infighting continues in Congress, CM Madhya Pradesh hits back
It appears Congress leader Jyotiraditya Scindia and Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath believe in washing the dirty linen in public and refuse to address their concerns at party platforms. Responding to Scindia warning that "he will become shield and sword of guests teachers in Madhya Pradesh if their demands were not met", Kamal Natha said: "Manifesto is for five years, right? It's not for five months".
Chief Minister Kamal Nath reminded Scindia on Friday that manifesto of Congress party is for five years which is not completed yet,". Congress leader Jyotiraditya in an event on Thursday had vowed to fight for guest teachers if promises made to them in the Congress manifesto were not fulfilled in Madhya Pradesh.
Scindia even threatened to hit the streets if "the promises made to teachers are not met after some time". He asked them to be a little more patient.
The war of words between Scindia and Kamal Nath has continued ever since the formation of Congress government in Madhya Pradesh. Scindia supporters believe that he did not get a fair deal for all the hard work he had put to make Congress victorious in Madhya Pradesh. Some Congress leaders believe that he should have been made the chief minister of Madhya Pradesh but he was denied the position which finally went to Kamal Nath. But that didn't resolve the issue and the acrimony between the two leaders come to the fore now and then.
