Bhopal (Madhya Pradesh): Former colleagues and forever staunch rivals, Digvijaya Singh and Jyotiraditya Scindia, coincidentally, chose the same day to file nomination for 2024 Lok Sabha Elections. While Congress veteran filed his nomination from Rajgarh Lok Sabha seat, Union Minister Scindia submitted his papers from Guna constituency, on Tuesday afternoon.

Before filing his nomination, the senior Congress leader offered prayers at Jalpa Mata temple. Both Rajgarh and Guna will vote in phase 3, May 7.

On the other hand, Jyotiraditya Scindia performed puja at Hanuman temple before filing his nomination. CM Dr. Mohan Yadav, former CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan and state president VD Sharma also reached Guna to take part in Scindia’s rally.

Will Scinidia regain his lost ground?
