Assuring the agitated teachers, Scindia urged them to be a little patient but if each one of the promises is not fulfilled then he will also hit the roads along with people against his own government. Hours after this statement, Kamal Nath said that the manifesto is for five years, not for five months. However today, Kamal Nath said that Scindia was free to hit the streets.
This happened on a day when a sitting state minister admitted that Congress could not fulfil the loan waiver promise made by former Congress chief Rahul Gandhi. Scindia had raised this issue last year and had asked the government to waive off farm loans in totality.
Reports suggest that all is not well between Kamal Nath and Jyotiraditya Scindia, both have very strong base in Madhya Pradesh. Scindia was the among the contenders for the top post when Congress came to power in December 2018. However, experienced parliamentarian Kamal Nath was given the top job. The differences between Scindia and Nath became known after the latter also retained the top post of Madhya Pradesh Congress.
