I am shocked and disheartened by your exit from my party. A party that you joined on 18.12.2001, after the demise of your father Late Madhvrao ji Scindia and pledged to uphold the “secular, liberal and social justice values”.
We Congress workers had always looked up to you for your forthrightness, energy and sincerity that you offered. I had the privilege in meeting you once when you had come to campaign for Girija ji Vyas during the 2018 Rajasthan Assembly Elections.
I was hoping against hope that all the drama of the past 2-3 days was about creating pressure on the Congress Central Leadership to pay heed to your demands. Never in my wildest dreams did I think that you would leave Congress to join some other party.
You were a member of my party for 19 years now, out of which you were MP for 18 years, a Central Minister and always had a say in the functioning of the party. पार्टी ने आपको बहुत कुछ दिया और आप का भी योगदान कभी कम नहीं रहा !!
हम जानना चाहते हैं की ऐसा क्या हुआ की आपको यह कदम लेना पड़ा, क्योंकि मीडिया में बताये तथ्य स्वीकार करने लायक नहीं है. I refuse to believe that the top leadership didn’t grant you an appointment nor did they hear you out. I agree my party has suffered debacles one after another in the recent past but this is the time you were needed the most but यह हो न सका!!
Ever since your exit people have been telling me to explore other options but how can I leave the party that has given me and my family so much and similarly couldn’t you have been a little more patient.
But like they say politics is the art of possibilities, you have chosen your new path and we congress workers will walk our own long arduous path as long as it takes to uphold the “secular, liberal and social justice values”.
All the best for your future and I wouldn’t get into mud-slinging and just end with the following couplet :
“तुम्हारा मुँह फेर लेना मेरे लिए काफ़ी था
रिश्तों को इल्ज़ाम की दहलीज़ तक ना लाओ “
