Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader and Rajya Sabha MP Jyotiraditya Scindia said that his thought process is clear, he has chosen the path of public service and not of politics. Scindia asserted, he is not interested in any post and only wants to work for development.
Speaking to ANI, Scindia said, “My thought process is clear, I have chosen the path of public service not of politics. It’s been 20 years and I am determined to serve people. I am not interested in any post, only want to work for development.”
“It was a government (of Congress) of corruption, working solely on basis of money. They made Vallabh Bhavan a hub of corruption. Don’t ask me about this, you can ask the people of Madhya Pradesh. There was a complete disregard of promises made to the public,” he added.
Speaking about former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath’s remarks on BJP leader Imarti Devi, Scindia said that he is full of ego and people will shatter it.
“In defence, Kamal Nath said he forgot her (Imarti Devi’s) name. How can you forget the name of someone who was in your cabinet? Because she’s a woman, a Dalit? Is this his and Congress’s thinking about women? He is full of ego and people will shatter it,” said Scindia.
Further, BJP MP Jyotiraditya Scindia said that Congress interim president Sonia Gandhi should have pulled up former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath for calling BJP leader Imarti Devi “item”.
“Though, it is an internal matter (of Congress). I certainly think so. In a country where 50 per cent of the population comprises of women, every political party must set a standard,” stated Scindia when asked whether Congress chief being women should have intervened.
He also slammed the former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister for ignoring displeasure of former Congress president Rahul Gandhi. “Such is the arrogance that you say to hell with what the former president says about him for using derogatory language against the woman candidate. The arrogance of Congress and Kamal Nath will be shattered by people of the state,” added Scindia.
