Hitting out at former Congress leader Jyotiraditya Scindia over his exit from the party after an 18-year-long association with it, Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot on Wednesday said “such opportunists should have left the party much earlier” adding that “people will teach him a lesson”.
“Such opportunists should have left the party much earlier. Congress party gave him so much for 18 years. People will teach him a lesson,” Mr Gehlot told media at Jaipur Airport.
Reacting to the issue, he said: “Mauka aane pe maukaparasti dikhai hai“.
The Congress has been witnessing an internal turf war in Madhya Pradesh since the party formed the government in the state in 2018.
Since Tuesday, uncertainty loomed large over the fate of Chief Minister Kamal Nath-led Congress government in Madhya Pradesh after Mr Scindia and 21 MLAs resigned from the party on Tuesday.
