Gwalior: Launching his election campaign in Madhya Pradesh from Gwalior-Chambal region, BJP leader Jyotiraditya Scindia attacked his former party colleague Kamal Nath, saying all he was bothered about was money and power.
Scindia who reached Gwalior on Thursday straightaway assaulted former Chief Minister Kamal Nath saying forget about exCM doing anything for the region, ask him whether he paid a single visit to the Gwalior-Chambal region when he was in power.
“If he says, he had left the responsibility of this region to me, I would like to clarify that nothing was done for the region despite hundreds of proposals from me,” added the Scindia family scion apparently replying to Nath’s remarks that he had always left the development of Gwalior-Chambal region to Scindias and did not intervene there in his political career. He (Nath) betrayed the public in his tenure and only cared for kursi and tijori (power and money), said the Rajya Sabha MP.
He also accused Nath of always crying over dearth of funds for development, saying Shivraj Singh Chouhan in five months of government not only opened the purse for Gwalior-Chambal region but also for the entire state. “There are ones who could turn possible things into impossible ones while there are others who make everything possible,” he added.
Scindia, however condemned the attack on Kamal Nath’s cavalcade but asked the Congress party to peep inside itself for the level of politics it exhibited in the recent past.
Scindia said he would be touring all the poll bound constituencies in the region in the next five days and remained hopeful that with a single ideology, view and goal, the BJP will emerge victorious in these bypolls.
Total 16 out of 28 bypolls are due in Gwalior-Chambal region where his loyalists are in the fray who had left the Congress party in March this year and followed him into the BJP.
