“We are not fighting this election on the Modi or Shivraj factor but the ‘people factor’. The people of Madhya Pradesh have suffered under the BJP rule for 14 years. Everywhere we look, the people are exasperated and angry,” the MP from Guna said.
On being asked what was different internally in the Congress organisation as compared to the past three elections and whether differences between senior leaders had been sorted, Scindia said the party was united and there were regular meetings on key matters, including on overhauling the organisation, reviving and rejuvenating party cadres and strengthening the system at the district and block level.
Madhya Pradesh will go to polls on November 28 and counting of votes will be held on December 11.
