Minutes after disgruntled Congress leader and former Guna MP Jyotiraditya Scindia tendered his resignation, Congress president Sonia Gandhi expelled him from the party.
"The Congress president has approved the expulsion of Jyotiraditya Scindia from the Indian National Congress with immediate effect for anti-party activities," according to a statement from AICC general secretary K C Venugopal.
Scindia, earlier met Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union home minister Amit Shah in New Delhi. Noting that the events of the day had been drawing themselves out for a year, Scindia in his resignation letter to Gandhi said that it was now best for him to look at a fresh start.

.....BJP tapped Scindia isolation and dissatisfaction
Speaking to TherPrint, a BJP leader said Scindia had been facing isolation in the Congress for a long time.
“He was ignored, and was upset with Kamal Nath-Digvijaya jugalbandi. His candidature for the post of chief minister was denied. Sonia Gandhi had said that age was on his side and he would be made the Madhya Pradesh Congress president, but Kamal Nath did not cede this post to Scindia.”
The leader said Scindia had been waiting for the announcement of Rajya Sabha candidature but there was no communication from the top. This is when the BJP got in touch with Scindia and convinced him that there was no future for him in the Congress under the “ineffective leadership” of Digvijaya Singh and Kamal Nath, he added.
In January 2019, Scindia had sparked a buzz in Bhopal by calling on Chouhan. Both had then termed the meeting a courtesy call.
In November 2019, he signalled his dissatisfaction by dropping references to his official post in the Congress in his Twitter bio. He later played it down, though sources had then said Congress and Kamal Nath had “undermined his anger and frustration”.
“We had been in touch with Scindia for the last five months. Initiative was taken by Scindia, who then took time to reassure himself about quitting the Congress. When he gave the green signal, the BJP top leadership got involved,” the BJP leader told ThePrint.
