Indore: BJP senior leader and former state chief Rakesh Singh ​said ​here on ​Friday that Congress has still not come out of ​the ​loss it suffered ​when ​Jyotiraditya Scindia​ left the party and joined BJP.​

“We all know Scindia’s stature. Congress did not value and respect him so he crossed over to BJP. Now, Congress ​cannot digest his loss so ​they speak against him​ all the time​,” he told reporters answering to Congress​'​ claim that Scindia ​was not getting the ​respect he was expecting from BJP.

Singh stated that BJP knows when and where ​to utilise Scindia, who was elected as Rajya Sabha member on the saffron party ​ticket ​on Friday, and take his services​ accordingly​.

“He is ​fully involved in party activities and workers have also started feeling ​comfortable with him,” he said.

On Sanver by-poll elections, Singh stated that minister Tulsiram Silawat did a lot for Sanver region so his win from the assembly seat is certain.

On India-China border stand-off, Singh stated the entire country will rally behind their armed forces. “We all are with our forces. Under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, this country is not going to back off on any front,” he stated.

Singh stated that by calling an all-party meeting, the PM conveyed to one and all that he ​will ​take everyone in confidence on serious issues.
