BJP will win majority of seats in bypolls: Scindia

New Delhi: Accusing former chief ministers Kamal Nath and Digvijaya Singh of being the biggest traitors in Madhya Pradesh, BJP leader Jyotiraditya Scindia on Monday said they betrayed voters trust by running a corrupt government and he had to leave the Congress after people’s issues raised by him were not addressed despite approaching every port of call.

He also expressed confidence that the BJP will win a majority, if not all, of the 28 assembly seats where by-polls will be held on November 3.

In an interview with PTI, Scindia said 27 out of the 28 assembly seats which are going to polls were Congress seats, so the BJP has everything to gain, while the Congress has everything to lose.

By-elections were necessitated after 22 rebel Congress MLAs, loyal to Scindia, resigned from the party in March this year leading to fall of the 15-month-old Kamal Nath government in Madhya Pradesh. Later, three more MLAs resigned and joined BJP, while further three seats fell vacant due to the death of sitting MLAs.

“The Congress needs to win 28 out of 28 seats to be able to even think of coming close to forming the government and they have just lost another MLA (in Rahul Lodhi) who has joined the BJP. It is very clear that people do not have any hope in the Congress party, not only at grassroots, but also in sitting MLAs of the Congress,” Scindia said.

“I do not think in any other state you would have seen MLAs in such a large number – almost about 30 per cent — leaving. It very clearly shows the lack of trust and faith in the state leadership of the Congress party which is Kamal Nath and Digvijaya Singh, and who are in a partnership,” the Rajya Sabha MP said.
