In an interview with a news channel, Scindia said false news surprised both as the relations between them have always been cordial. He said all party leaders are united and there was no truth in reports of verbal duel. Singh also refuted media reports in a tweet of the alleged spat.
Scindia said the party wants to build a new Madhya Pradesh after winning elections, a state where it’s not been in power since 2003. The Congress leader said the election results of the five states will be a testament to waning popularity of PM Narendra Modi. “People of Madhya Pradesh demand change and the results will show on December 11,”he said exuding confidence.
To a question by a Twitter user on Congress’stand on Ram temple issue, Scindia said matter is subjudice and the Congress will abide by the Supreme Court’s verdict. Lashing out at the BJP, Scindia said the saffron party has a customary practice of raking up the Ram temple matter every five years during elections.
Scindia believes Modi government has failed in implementing GST properly as traders are not getting their refund. “The Centre only knows to mulct the taxpayers.” He said those who are criticising the Congress for not doing enough in the last six decades must realise that “under leadership of Manmohan Singh, GDP grew at 7.8%. But look at the figures now. The situation will again change when Congress forms the government,” he said.
