Putting all speculations to rest, disgruntled Congress leader Jyotiraditya Scindia has quit from the primary membership of the party.
In his registration letter, he is resigning from the primary membership of the party because he is not able to serve the people of Madhya Pradesh and India.
In his resignation letter, which is dated March 9th, 2020, to Congress president Sonia Gandhi, Scindia said, “It’s time for me to move on.”
He also said that he will look ahead for a fresh start to meet the aspirations of the people.
“While my aim and purpose remain the same as it has always been from the very beginning, to serve the people of my state and country, I believe I am unable to do this anymore within this party,” he added.
Earlier in the day, he met Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah on March 10th, 2020 amid indications that he might join hands with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) to topple the Madhya Pradesh government.
“To reflect and realise the aspirations of my people and my workers I believe it is the best that I now look ahead at a fresh start,” Scindia said.
Twenty legislators loyal to Scindia, who has been upset with the Congress leadership with his marginalisation in the affairs of the Madhya Pradesh Congress, are likely to quit the party to reduce the Kamal Nath-led government to a minority.
It is likely to be followed by the BJP staking claim to form the government in the state.
