Lok Sabha elections in Madhya Pradesh is expected in 2019

Senior Congress leader Kamal Nath today virtually confirmed that Jyotiraditya Scindia will lead the party in the run-up to Madhya Pradesh Assembly elections. 

Kamal Nath told reporters in his Lok Sabha constituency Guna that there was no opposition to Scindia's name as the leader of the party in the state. 

However, the official announcement would be made by the party at an appropriate time, he said.

As Madhya Pradesh goes to poll by next year-end, the party is taking gears for good electoral gains in Madhya Pradesh, where it has been out of power for the last 14 years.
