Singh also took the opportunity to take a jibe at Jyotiraditya Scindia loyalist Ranveer Jatav who has not been given a ticket by the BJP.
He said, “The question is that wasn't it Scindia ji's job to protect and assure those whom he had taken along with him? But, he could not protect them. Now who will believe such a man?”
