Questions raised on Scindia family from Gandhi family, such has been the legacy and politics of Maharaj's family.

Priyanka Gandhi has accused the Scindia family of betrayal on the pretext of Jyotiraditya Scindia. What kind of roles did the Scindia family play before and after independence and will what Jayajirao Scindia did be called betrayal?

Voting for 230 assembly seats of Madhya Pradesh will be held on Friday, November 17. Just a day before the elections in the state, a statement by Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi is being discussed a lot. While addressing the public meeting in Datia, Priyanka said that Scindia has betrayed the people of Gwalior and Chamba. Priyanka also said that the Scindia family's tradition has been of betrayal and Jyotiraditya Scindia has followed the same.

While saying this, Priyanka was pointing towards the rebellion of Jyotiraditya Scindia which she had done with many Congress MLAs in the year 2020. After this the Congress government led by Kamal Nath fell. The question is whether the tradition of cheating that the Congress party is accusing the Scindia family of is really true? What is the history of this family?

When Scindia contingent fought fiercely!

The story of Scindia family begins with historical achievements. It is the year 1761. A battle was fought between the Marathas and the army of Ahmed Shah Abdali. In this battle called the third battle of Panipat, Scindia contingent was also involved along with the Maratha army. It is said that Scindia's contingent fought fiercely. The army of the Scindia family suffered serious losses. Commanders like Tukoji Scindia and Jankoji Scindia lost their lives in this. This incident is considered one of the important contributions of the Scindia family.

Scindia, a friend of the British, left the capital…

Whenever the first war of independence of 1857 is mentioned, allegations start pouring in on the Scindia family. What happened was that when the Indian revolutionaries rebelled against British India, Jyotiraditya's ancestor Jayajirao Scindia used to be the ruler of Gwalior. A section of historians and intellectuals believe that Jayajirao Scindia supported the British in the first freedom struggle and tried to suppress the rebellion. This is seen as betrayal in popular beliefs.

For this, the help of those lines of the famous poet Subhadra Kumari Chauhan are taken in which she wrote, “Scindia, a friend of the British, left the capital, fought a lot for manhood, she was the queen of Jhansi”. However, some enlightened people also believe that the talk of betrayal about Scindia Naresh is a fabrication. Those who argue in defense of the Scindia family, however, say that he was not alone in taking this decision. Many other kings of that time also took the side of the British.

Scindia family after independence

Jyotiraditya Scindia's grandmother Vijaya Raje Scindia contested elections on Congress ticket in the years 1957 and 1962 and reached Parliament. But later the Congress party and Rajmata Scindia did not get along. It is said that she was angry with the lack of attention given to her in the party and ultimately decided to separate from the Congress. She joined Bharatiya Janata Party through Jan Sangh. It is believed that Vijaya Raje Scindia also helped financially in expanding the organization of Jan Sangh. The Congress party also sees this as a deception. Congress understands that Rajmata Scindia became MP on Congress ticket and then strengthened the Bharatiya Janata Party.

However, there is a twist here too, Vijaya Raje Scindia continued her political journey with the Bharatiya Janata Party after separating from the Congress, but her son and Jyotiraditya Scindia's father Madhavrao Scindia decided to play a different political innings from his mother after the Emergency. decided to. Madhavrao, who was elected from Gwalior seat on Jan Sangh ticket in 1972, contested the 1984 elections on BJP ticket and remained a Congressman till the end of his life.
