UPHOLDING FAMILY traditions and serving people is more important than finding a berth in the Union Cabinet, Congress MP Jyotiraditya Scindia said here Monday. “More than becoming a minister, it’s important to me to uphold my family traditions and serve the people,” Scindia said, reacting to reporters’ queries at Chanderi, around 100 km from here Monday.
Dismissing speculations about him being dejected for not being included in Sunday’s Manmohan Singh Cabinet expansion, Scindia said, “Is it necessary to become a minister? Is there any work in my constituency that I am not able to get sanctioned from Congress president Ms Sonia Gandhi or Prime Minister Manmohan Singh?”
Political observers had been predicting about inclusion of the young Congress leader in the Union Ministry even as Scindia had been keeping mum over it, sources said.
Addressing people here at Matapura, he charged Madhya Pradesh Government with being responsible for bad roads in the State and said the State Government should fulfil its pre-poll promises and ensure 24 hour single phase power supply in the villages.
