Jyotiraditya Scindia would have become CM had he stayed with Congress: Rahul Gandhi
New Delhi/IBNS: Bharatiya Janata Party leader Jyotiraditya Scindia would have become a Chief Minister had he stayed with the Congress but instead became a backbencher in the BJP, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi said on Monday.
While speaking to the youth wing of the party, NDTV quoting sources reported Gandhi as saying: "He (Scindia) would have become the Chief Minister had he stayed with Congress but has become a backbencher in the BJP."
"Scindia had the option to strengthen the organisation by working with Congress workers. I told him - One day you will become the Chief Minister. But he chose another route," said the former Congress chief.
"Write it down, he will never become Chief Minister there. He will have to come back here for that," Gandhi further went on to say, reported the channel quoting sources.
Scindia had resigned from the Congress party and joined the BJP in March last year.
Gandhi asked his youth party members to fight against the ideology of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) and not be afraid of anyone.
