Senior Congress leader Jyotiradita Scindia on Friday, 14 February, threatened to join the ongoing protests by teachers in Madhya Pradesh to his own party leaders if their demands are not met, reported The Indian Express.
“Our manifesto (for Assembly elections) promised to fulfill your demand. The manifesto is a sacred book for us. If every promise is not fulfilled, I will take to the streets with you. Don’t think you are alone,” Scindia said in Kundila village in Tikamgarh. He was addressing a rally when the guest teachers raised slogans.
Scindia has also gone against the Kamal Nath government in the past when he lost the 2019 Lok Sabha elections.
"“It is impossible that Congress party makes a promise and does not fulfill it. If Congress has promised something then it is very important to fulfill it... nahi to sadak par utarna padega.” " - Jyotiradita Scindia, Senior Congress Leader
“The country is changing. Similarly, people’s thought process is changing. We (Congress) have to change and reach out to people with a new approach,” he said Wednesday.
Scindia has encouraged the Congress party to align themselves with a new ideology and working style after the party secured zero seats in the recent Delhi Assembly Elections.
