New Delhi: Congress, already in the middle of an infighting over its debacle in the recently-held Delhi Assembly Election, seemed to be hurtling towards infighting in its Madhya Pradesh unit now, after Jyotiraditya Scindia reiterated that he will ‘hit the streets’ if Chief Minister Kamal Nath’s government didn’t fulfil promises made in the party’s manifesto before the December 2018 state polls.

On Saturday, responding to Scindia’s ‘threat’ to hit the streets, CM Kamal Nath had remarked, “Toh utar jayein (let him if he wants to).”
A day later, speaking to media in Gwalior, Scindia remarked, “I’m a servant of the people. Fighting for their issues is my responsibility. We have to be patient.”
“We have to fulfil the promises that we made in our manifesto. If this is not done, then we will have to hit the streets,” he added.
Scindia, who last year lost the Lok Sabha elections from his constituency Guna, has been, for the last two months, raising issues, particularly farm loan waiver, which he claims have not been fulfilled despite being promised in the party’s manifesto.
The Congress came to power in Madhya Pradesh in December 2018, unseating the Shivraj Singh Chouhan-led BJP government in the state. After days of uncertainty over who’d be the Chief Minister, Kamal Nath pipped Scindia to the office.
According to reports, the two leaders will meet very soon to resolve their differences.
