Bhopal (Madhya Pradesh): The ministers of Jyotiraditya Scindia group have received a dressing-down for the first time from the BJP organisation.

National co-organisational general secretary Shivprakash and regional organisational general secretary Ajay Jamwal called a few ministers to the party office in Bhopal on Wednesday to discuss certain issues with them.

Both of them spoke to Tulsi Silawat, Govind Singh Rajput, Pradhuman Singh Tomar, Rajvardhan Singh Dattigaon and Prabhuram Choudhary.

According to sources, during his trip to various places, Jamwal got feedback that the ministers belonging to the Scindia group did not coordinate with the party organisation.

All those ministers were clearly told that as the organisation is more important than anything else in the BJP, they should understand that.

These ministers have been asked to coordinate with the leaders of the organisation and work accordingly.

They have been directed to keep away from controversy and to work according to the directives of the party leadership.

There were complaints against the ministers of the Scindia group that they barely take any interest in the programmes held by the party.

The party was angry about their way of working and asked those ministers to take interest in the party’s programmes. In many places, there is internal squabbling in the party.

Rajput is facing a land-related dispute. On the other hand, Dattigaon was caught in a controversy after a video of a woman had gone viral on social media. They have also been advised against making unnecessary statements.
