The tussle for leadership in Madhya Pradesh Congress seems to be growing every day. The supporters of Congress leader Jyotiraditya Scindia have voiced their opinion and are making the demand to appoint him the chief of the MP unit of the party.

After a hoarding was seen on Monday morning in Gwalior requesting Congress interim president Sonia Gandhi to appoint party leader Scindia as MP Congress chief, another leader has now published advertisments in support of Scindia in many newspapers.

These ads published by Madhya Pradesh party leader Abdul Naseer are a request to Gandhi calling for Scindia's appointment as MP Congress chief.  

The leaders of the faction supporting Scindia have openly advocated for him. The workers have been displeased with Scindia being made the chairman of Maharashtra Screening Committee.  

Earlier, a hoarding had appeared with a message, "All India Congress Committee (AICC) president Sonia Gandhi should not come under anyone's pressure and must appoint Jyotiraditya Scindia as the Madhya Pradesh Congress chief." 

Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath met Gandhi in New Delhi on Friday. He apprised her about the need for a new Madhya Pradesh Congress Committee (MPCC) president. Presently, Kamal Nath is serving as the state president. However, ever since he expressed his desire to be free from the responsibility, the hunt for another leader started.
