Guna: Senior Congress leader Jyotiraditya Scindia today said the mood of people in Madhya Pradesh, going to polls later this year, is in favour of dislodging the BJP government of Shivraj Singh Chouhan.

“Lawlessness is prevailing in Madhya Pradesh. After touring the state, I feel that people are fed up with the BJP government and have made up their mind to change it in the elections, due in November,” the state Congress campaign committee chairman told reporters here. Gujarat Congress MLA Alpesh Thakor, who visited Guna today, suggested the party project Scindia as its chief ministerial face.

When asked to comment on Thakor’s proposal, Scindia said, “I am an activist of the party. I do not run after a position. I try my best to shoulder the responsibility assigned to me”. The Guna MP had addressed a string of election meetings in various districts in the last three days. The Congress has been out of power in the state since 2003.
