Bhopal: Chief Minister Kamal Nath is most likely to leave Chhindwara Lok Sabha seat in Madhya Pradesh, he currently represents, to his son Nakul in the forthcoming general elections, due in March-April this year.
A senior Congress leader disclosed to this newspaper here on Sunday that Mr Nath who won Chhindwara parliamentary constituency a record nine times, has ‘made up his mind’ to field his elder son in the seat in the upcoming general elections.
‘Mr Nath is mulling to get elected to the MP Assembly from the Chhindwara segment and leave the Chhindwara LS seat to his son to keep it with his family,’ the Congress leader said requesting not to be quoted.
Mr Nath’s wife Alka had once represented Chhindwara LS seat when he withdrew from the elections.
Interestingly, junior Mr Nath was seen accompanying his chief minister father, when the latter was attending different official programmes, held in Chhindwara on Sunday.
In another development, another veteran Congress leader Jyotiraditya Scindia was believed to be planning to vacate his Guna parliamentary constituency in MP for his wife Priya Darshani Raje Scindia in the ensuing LS elections.
Incidentally, the ‘Scindia-bahu’ who was yet to make debut in politics, was scheduled to attend a women Congress meet in Shivpuri district in MP, scheduled to be held on February 19.
Mr Scindia who was given charge of Uttar Pradesh (west) in coming generation elections, was said to be worried that he may not be able to devote enough time for his constituency during the elections since he would be busy in UP.
