    Reports are rife that Congress leader and former Guna MP Jyotiraditya Scindia has sent an ultimatum to Congress party high command to make him the head of Madhya Pradesh PCC.

    Scindia on Friday said if he’s not appointed as PCC chief, he’d ‘look for other options.’ Political circles are now abuzz with speculation that Scindia is in touch with BJP leaders to switch parties in case he’s not made the PCC chief.

    However, amidst all speculations, Nath soon met Congress President Sonia Gandhi at her home today. Nath post the meeting told reporters, “I don’t think Jyotiraditya Scindia is unhappy.”

    After Kamal Nath became Chief Minister of MP in December last year, it was assumed that he would give up the post of state unit chief. But since the Lok Sabha elections took place hardly few months after he became the CM, Nath continued with both posts — of the chief minister and of state PCC chief. It was said that despite multiple discussions, Scindia wasn’t allotted the post of deputy chief minister hence he should get his due as he didn’t challenge the leadership then.
