Jyotiraditya Scindia: A Maharaja’s odyssey from Congress to BJP

“He is a Maharaja only by title, he doesn’t command loyalty of more than 5-6 MLAs,” was the common reply by the powerful caucus in Madhya Pradesh whenever Jyotiraditya Scindia would raise the banner of revolt. Today, the same set of politicians are working overnight to save themselves the embarrassment of running a minority government after 20 odd MLAs sent their resignations to the Madhya Pradesh governor a few days ago. The Gwalior scion can now heave a sigh of relief as his joining BJP on Wednesday marks the end of a long-standing battle that he waged within Congress to get his due.
