Former Congress stalwart Jyotiraditya Scindia joined Bharatiya Janata Party

New Delhi:11/3/20 Former Congress stalwart Jyotiraditya Scindia on Wednesday joined Bharatiya Janata Party.  After months of speculations, Scindia parted ways with the grand old party following infighting over various issues with the Kamal Nath-led government.

He was welcomed by the party’s president JP Nadda at BJP headquarters in New Delhi. Nadda remembered his grandmother and party’s co-founder late Vijaya Raje Scindia.

In his acceptance speech, Jyotiraditya Scindia thanked PM Narendra Modi and BJP president JP Nadda along with Home Minister Amit Shah.

Jyotiraditya Scindia said that future of the country is firmly safe in hands of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Scindia will likely take around 22 MLAs with him, who also will join the saffron party.

Scindia was associated with the Congress for the last 18 years. His family has a long-standing association with the Congress party. Jyotoraditya Scindia’s father late Madhavrao Scindia has been a Congress stalwart during his time.

Peeved with his marginalisation in the Congress, Scindia met Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Tuesday and tendered his resignation from Congress membership to Sonia Gandhi.

In his resignation letter to Sonia Gandhi, Jyotiraditya Scindia said it is time for him to move on.
