Chhattisgarh CM Takes A Jibe At Aviation Minister Scindia, Calls Him 'saleable Maharaja'

Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel took a jibe at Jyotiraditya Scindia over his induction as the new Civil Aviation minister and said that he has been handed the ministry which is going to sell Air India. The CM said that his former party colleague and now BJP MP is 'saleable'.

Bhupesh Baghel was addressing a press conference in Nagpur when he took a jibe at the aviation ministry and its newest head. Speaking to the media, Baghel said, "They are going to sell Air India and that Ministry has been given to Scindia. Air India's logo is 'Maharaja'. Both (Jyotiraditya Scindia and Air India) are saleable. One is going to be auctioned and the other has been given charge to sell it."

Jyotiraditya Scindia has been on the receiving end of criticism for nearly a year now. The opposition has been targeting him ever since he joined the BJP last year, after leaving Congress. Scindia’s induction as the new Civil Aviation Minister on July 9, has only added to the heat over him. Soon after he assumed charges as the chief of the Aviation Ministry, Madhya Pradesh Congress chief Kamal Nath had also taken a jibe at him.

"This is a matter between BJP and Scindia. May he be happy. Ab kaise aage chalti hai gaadi wo dekha jayega (It will be seen how this vehicle moves forward)," Kamal Nath told reporters here when asked about Scindia's inclusion in the Union Cabinet. Congress leaders have been critical of the government’s spending over the years and its privatisation policies of various sectors. The latest heat over Air India is being led by the opposition.
