In big slip in Madhya Pradesh, Congress ‘elects’ BJP leader to general secretary post

The Congress, in an embarrassing slip in Madhya Pradesh, elected a youth wing general secretary who has long left the party and is now in the BJP. The leader's "election" has now been cancelled but the blunder is being held up by Congress critics as symptomatic of the party's disconnect with ground realities.

Harshit Singhai had quit the Congress in March, when several party MLAs and workers left with Jyotiraditya Scindia to join BJP.
 
The Youth Congress’ organisational election results were announced on December 18, and Singhai was elected by 12 votes. The same day, Singhai received congratulatory messages over his new post in Jabalpur.
 
“The most laughable is the fact that no one was interested in the polls and I was elected general secretary,” he told reporters. “I left the Congress on March 10 with Scindia-ji. I filled in my nomination for the Youth Congress polls three years ago.”

Singhai said he had requested the party to drop his name after he joined the BJP but nothing was done. “When I called again, they asked me to send a mail explaining the circumstances in which I left the party,” he added. “I had written to Kamal Nath [former Madhya Pradesh chief minister] and Rahul Gandhi. This is what the Youth Congress has done across Madhya Pradesh. Those who are not in the party anymore are being elected.”, Singhai said,

Youth Congress leaders called it a cheap publicity stunt and blamed the BJP worker for his election to the post.
