New Delhi: In a major twist to Congress political crisis in Madhya Pradesh, Congress leader Jyotiraditya Scindia tendered resignation on Tuesday from the primary membership of the Indian National Congress after working in the party for over 18 years.
He submitted the resignation letter to Congress President Sonia Gandhi.
In the letter, he states that his aim and purpose has always been to serve the people of his state and country, but now that he is unable to do this anymore within the Congress party.
Scindia added that to reflect and realise the aspirations of his people and workers, he is now looking ahead at a fresh start.
The development comes after Scindia visited Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Amit Shah today morning.
Scindia’s move has left the Congress government in Madhya Pradesh on the brink of a dramatic collapse, and it is believed that he may join the BJP today in a shock move and be nominated to the Rajya Sabha as its member.
