ANI Photo | “I am Congress’ black crow”: Jyotiraditya Scindia ahead of Madhya Pradesh polls

Union Civil Aviation Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia, who was earlier in the Congress party, reminded his former party colleagues of the popular Bollywood song “Jhoot Bole Kauva Kate” and said that he is the black crow for the Congress party, implying that the party should fear him.
“26 lakh fake certificates were distributed in the name of loan waivers to farmers. Even I distributed some of those certificates. There is an old saying- Jhoot Bole Kauva Kate, Kale Kauve Se Darriyo. I am the black crow for the Congress,” Scindia said speaking at a public rally in Ashoknagar on Friday.
Lauding Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chauhan for his Ladli Laxmi Yojana which helped in women empowerment in the state, Scindia said that a when a girlchild is born she in now regarded as “lakhpati”.
“In Madhya Pradesh, when a girl child was born, the family used to think that a burden had come upon them. When Shivraj Singh Chauhan’s government came to power in Madhya Pradesh the first step that he took was the Ladli Laxmi Yojana. Now when a girlchild is born in a family she is no longer treated as a burden but a “lakhpati,” Scindia said.
Madhya Pradesh is one of the five states set to undergo polls in one phase on November 17 and the counting of votes will take place on December 3. Voters will choose legislators from 230 Assembly constituencies.
Notably, the last state assembly polls in 2018 saw the Congress coming to power, with veteran leader Kamal Nath taking oath as the chief minister. Nonetheless, a political upheaval rocked the state in 2020 after then-Congressman Jyotiraditya Scindia, along with 22 loyalist MLAs, switched over to the saffron camp.
The Congress government fell after being reduced to a minority and the BJP formed the government, with Shivraj Singh Chouhan returning as chief minister
