Scindia Eyes Guna

March 30 2019

Congress’s Western UP in-charge Jyotiradita Scindia is too occupied with Madhya Pradesh that he is unable to focus on the seats going for polls in the first phase of Lok Sabha elections. Scindia wants a Congress ticket from Gwalior for his wife Priyadarshini. This way the Scindia family will have a hold over both Gwalior and Guna which will also increase their popularity.
Last time, despite the Modi wave, Narendra Singh Tomar had registered victory from Gwalior with 29,000 votes. However, the obstacle in Scindia’s ambitions is that whenever Priyanka Gandhi holds a meet with the UP leaders, the venue for that is Scindia’s Delhi residence. So Scindia has to anyhow be present at these meetings.
The cold war between Scindia and Kamal Nath in Madhya Pradesh is an ongoing. In the last State Legislative Assembly polls while Kamal Nath did only 70 rallies, Scindia’s were 132. Even so, Kamal Nath was declared the CM of the state.
On the other hand, Amit Shah has also made it very clear that this time Guna, Chhindwara and Jhabua are must-wins for the party. Yogi government’s Energy and Transport minister Swatantra Dev Singh has been given the responsibility of Guna.
