Nitin Chaturvedi, son of senior Congress leader and former Member of Parliament (MP) Satyavrat Chaturvedi, is contesting from Rajnagar in Bundelkhand region of Madhya Pradesh under the banner of Samajwadi Party (SP). Following which, Satyavrat has announced to campaign for Akhilesh Yadav led Samajwadi Party in the region.
According to sources, Congress is planning to expel Satyavrat from the party over involvement in anti-party activities. Satyavrat has been very vocal against the state leadership over various issues and attacked the party over ticket distribution system for the upcoming polls, sources claimed.
Earlier, Satyavrat stated that “I am still a Congress member. Congress has been repeating the same mistake (of ignoring his son) for 15 years. Doing injustice is the sin, and tolerating injustice is equally sinful. So my son took the decision to go to the people’s court”.
Nitin Chaturvedi alleged that Congress has adopted a callous attitude towards grassroots-level workers. Congress has fielded Vikram Singh Natiraja, a three-time MLA, from Rajnagar.
