Jaora: In order to discuss current political scenario prevailing in the state as well as for solidarity with party, scores of Congress leaders and the workers from Jaora held a meeting.

Scindia's partner late Mahendra Singh Kalukheda’s younger brother, KK Singh Kalukheda also joined BJP along with some of his supporters.
