Prime Minister Narendra Modi has won a mandate twice like no other and that India’s future seems safe in his hands, Scindia added has named Scindia as one of its candidates for the Rajya Sabha elections in Madhya Pradesh.

Hailing his joining BJP, his paternal aunt Yashodhara Raje Scindia, BJP MLA, has tweeted: Very happy today. Govt will be formed in MP under Shivraj Singh’s Chouhan’s leadership. We’re happy as I’ve worked under him &I know what wonderful schemes we had for people & today we don’t have those. Best wishes to my nephew, hope we’ll have a good aunt-nephew combination. Imarti Devi, one of the 22 Congress MLAs who have resigned from the Madhya Pradesh Assembly, said that she will support the former Congress leader in everything he does. She was quoted by ANI as saying, “All 22 MLAs are here (in Bengaluru) on their own will. We’re happy Scindia ji has taken this decision. I’ll always stay with him even if I had to jump in a well. When we were in Congress, Kamal Nath ji never heard us.”After the induction of  Scindia into the BJP, former Madhya Pradesh chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan said that the entire Gwalior royal family is with the BJP now. “Joytiraditya is a young, energetic leader and comes from a line of leaders who consider politics a medium to serve the people. 18 months ago, the Congress formed the government in MP. The Kamal Nath government destroyed the state and did not fulfil promises. The government made new records of corruption and stopped welfare schemes of the BJP. Joytiraditya has chosen the BJP to serve the people and I welcome him to the party,” he said.
