Addressing a gathering Scindia said, “My thinking and ideology is very clear. I am not interested in politics. My mission is service to people and progress and development of the nation. Till now I did not come to Raghogarh due to some hesitation but now I will come here again and again.”
Attacking the Opposition Congress the union minister said, “We believe in keeping our words even at the cost of our life but there is a party which believes in saving its life at every cost and hardly cares about keeping its words.”
During a programme in Guna, Scindia said there should be all-round development of Guna region. “We are working day and night in this direction. Our first priority is to bring the most backward people forward especially the Sahariya tribe. Keeping this objective in mind, 5000 houses have been approved for the Sahariya tribe as a special package”, he added.
