'Not upset with Jyotiraditya Scindia': Kamal Nath amid cracks in Congress


Bhopal, Feb 18: Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath on Tuesday denied being angry with Congress general secretary Jyotiraditya Scindia, who last week threatened to hit the streets against the state government over non- fulfillment of promises made in the poll manifesto.

"When I have never been angry with (former chief minister and BJP national vice president) Shivraj Singh Chouhan, how come I can be with Scindia," Nath told reporters here on the sidelines of a programme, when asked about his party colleague.

Responding to it, Nath on Saturday said, "Toh woh utar jaaye (let him do so)."

Later on Sunday, Scindia reiterated he is a public servant and will hit the streets if promises made in the poll manifesto are not fulfilled, but also said there is a need to be patient with the Kamal Nath government as it has completed only a year.
