Digvijay`s brother endorses Scindia as MP poll panel chief
Guna: With the appointment of Union Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia as chairman of Madhya Pradesh`s Congress poll campaign committee, state unit is confident of having an edge during the upcoming state Assembly elections.
"Congress will definitely gain with the appointment of Scindia as election campaign committee chief in the state Assembly polls," state party unit Vice President Laxman Singh told reporters here last evening.
Reacting to BJP`s criticism of Scindia which called him "feudal", Singh said the Union minister had questioned the saffron party as to why it did not think of feudalism over affiliation of his grandmother (Vijayaraje Scindia) or aunts (Vasundhara Raje and Yashodhara Raje Scindia) with that party.
On the party`s prime ministerial candidate, Laxman said since the country did not have a presidential form of government, declaration of a PM nominee before the elections amounted to an insult of the Constitution.
Terming as incorrect, reports that his elder brother - Congress General Secretary Digvijay Singh - had been sidelined in the state party unit, Laxman said all party leaders understood the necessity of having Digvijay on board.
Laxman said the real test of state Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan`s popularity would be held after the model code of conduct for elections comes into force, as then the government would be unable to bring crowds for Chouhan`s meetings.
