No dictionary imbues “truth” with the depth of meaning Gandhi gave it. His truth emerged from his convictions: It meant not only what was accurate, but what was just and therefore right.No dictionary imbues “truth” with the depth of meaning Gandhi gave it.

While my aim and purpose remain the same as it has always been from the very beginning, to serve the people of my state and country, I believe I am unable to do this anymore within this party (Congress).

__ Jyotiraditya Scindia after his resignation from the Congress

************************************************************************

This is a fight of ideology, clear cut. On one side is Congress and BJP-RSS on the other. I know Jyotiraditya Scindia’s ideology, he was with me in college, I know him very well. He got worried about his political future, put his ideology in his pocket and went with the RSS. The reality is, he will get neither respect there, nor will the emotion in his heart get satisfaction. I am an old friend of Jyotiraditya.

__ Rahul Gandhi, Congress leader

************************************************************************

I wish him well under Modi-Shah tutelage. No question he was not at all sidelined. In fact, please ask any Congress leader from MP particularly from Gwalior Chambal Division and you would come to know nothing moved in this area without his consent in the last 16 months. Sad……I agree with Pawan that he should replace Amit Shah or Nirmala Sitharaman and knowing his talent he would certainly do a better job than either of them. May he grow under Modi-Shah tutelage. Our best wishes to you to you Maharaj.

==============================================================

Amazing that those who usually find fault with the Gandhis leading Congress because of their surname are finding a Scindia leaving INC as a big blow for the party. The fact is but for his surname even Jyotiraditya Scindia has little to show as mass leader, political organizer or administrator.

__ Prashant Kishor

************************************************************************
