The state Congress unit took to Twitter and asked Scindia as to why he still chose to go "under the shelter of Modi-Shah (Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Amit Shah) duo?"

"In Scindia's 18-year political career, Congress made him Member of Parliament for 17 years, Union minister twice, chief whip, national general secretary, in-charge of Uttar Pradesh, Congress Working Committee member, election campaign head, 50-plus tickets and 9 ministers were given. Still under the shelter of Modi-Shah?" the MP Congress tweeted in Hindi along with an image referring that Scindia had "broken the trust".

Meanwhile, senior Congress leader Digvijaya Singh too reiterated that Scindia was "not at all sidelined".

Taking to Twitter, Singh said that nothing in the Gwalior-Chambal division had moved without Scindia's consent in the last 16 months.

"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. But I wish him well under Modi-Shah tutelage!" Singh tweeted.

The leader's comment comes at a time when uncertainty looms large over the fate of Chief Minister Kamal Nath-led Congress government in Madhya Pradesh after Scindia and 22 MLAs resigned from the party on Tuesday.
Scindia is likely to join the Bharatiya Janata Party today.
