TDN World Desk: BJP leader Jyotiraditya Scindia, whose supporters scored big in the Madhya Pradesh cabinet expansion on Thursday announced his return to the forefront of state politics after months of silence and speculation by aiming a one-liner at his former Congress colleagues: “Tiger zinda hai”.
The Bharatiya Janata Party leader, recently elected to the Rajya Sabha, lashed out at the Congress, his party of 19 years until he quit in March.
He said,”I don’t need any certificate from Kamal Nath nor Digvijaya Singh. The facts are before the people how they looted the state in 15 months.”
Scindia said, “It is our duty to fight against injustice. Even if it means war, then Jyotiraditya Scindia will be on the frontlines. For the last two months, people have been trying to tarnish my character. I want to tell them – tiger abhi zinda hai (tiger is still alive).”
He also said, “The BJP government is under the leadership of (chief minister) Shivraj Singh Chouhan, who has always adopted the path of service of people…(so) I am sure in the coming 24 Assembly by-polls, the BJP’s flag will fly high in all the seats and people will give a befitting reply to the 15-month long government of corruption.”
