New Delhi: Holi 2020 started with both the Congress and the BJP paying their Twitter homage to former Union minister Madhavrao Scindia, whose son Jyotiraditya Scindia left both the sides on the tenterhooks by his sudden disappearance a day earlier. As the day progressed, it became clear that Jyotiraditya Scindia has switched the boat. But now what? What’s next for both Jyotiraditya and the Congress in Madhya Pradesh?

According to reports, Jyotiraditya will go to the Rajya Sabha with a BJP ticket. He may join the party on Tuesday evening. Scindia lost his family Lok Sabha seat Guna in 2019 Lok Sabha election. This was his family seat since the time of Vijayaraje Scindia. So he didn’t have a Parliament seat, he didn’t have any official post on Madhya Pradesh Congress either. He was Congress in-charge of Western Uttar Pradesh. Now if he joins the BJP and gets an RS ticket, he will get back his entry to Parliament. This was one of his demands from the Congress, which was not being paid heed to. Also Read - After Kamal Nath's 'Toh Utar Jayein' Retort, Jyotiraditya Scindia Reiterates Will 'Hit The Streets'
What’s next for Congress?
The Kamal Nath government is in trouble as 20 MLAs have tendered their resignations from the Assembly. They are Scindia loyalists. Without their support, the Kamal Nath government will lose the majority. But this will happen once their resignations from the Assembly are accepted.
Meanwhile, Chief Minister Kaman Nath has also written to the Governor seeking immediate removal of six ministers.
