Jyotiraditya Scindia’s “Tiger abhi zinda hai” remark impressed responses from both the leaders it was evidently aimed at – his former Congress colleagues Kamal Nath and Digvijaya Singh.

Congress chief Kamal Nath, whose authorities in Madhya Pradesh crashed when 22 MLAs exited with Jyotiraditya Scindia, returned his jibes with his have.
“Which tiger is zinda (alive)? Paper tiger or a circus one,” quipped Kamal Nath.

Yesterday, Mr Scindia produced the “tiger” remark far more than when. “I will surely react to the Congress get together, but I would like to remind the two Kamal Nath and Digvijaya Singh that Tiger abhi zinda hai (tiger is even now alive).” He recurring the remark at a party perform afterwards.
Mr Scindia give up the Congress, his social gathering of 19 many years, in March after a long feud with the Madhya Pradesh veterans. His exit brought the 15-thirty day period-outdated Kamal Nath govt down and enabled BJP’s Shivraj Singh Chouhan to return to ability for the fourth time.
Mr Chouhan took demand in March and functioned with five ministers amid a disagreement around ministerial posts, with Mr Scindia pushing his loyalists, in particular those people who envisioned to be rewarded for defecting from the Congress.
Right after extensive negotiations, Mr Scindia prevailed and snagged ministries for 11 of his candidates, boasting 41 per cent of the cupboard. This intended that Mr Chouhan was compelled to give up on some of his candidates, like professional previous ministers.
In 2018, when the BJP lost the point out election, Mr Chouhan had manufactured the exact same comment – “Tiger abhi zinda hai” – to indicate that he would make a comeback.
