Former chief minister Digvijaya Singh on Wednesday said a new Congress party has emerged in Gwalior-Chambal region. Singh commented on BJP leader Jyotiraditya Scindia through his tweet on Wednesday.

He added that although the election results did not come in favour of Congress party, the latter won seven out of 16 seats in the region. Bhander seat was lost by 171 votes. “People who used to think that Congress will be finished in the region after Scindia joined BJP were proved wrong,” he added.

He denied that factionalism existed in the party during by-elections as all Congressmen worked unitedly. Singh alleged that BJP used money power to suppress voice of people but Congress party will always stand by the people.
