    SUBJ: MADHAV RAO SCINDIA LEAVES JANA SANGH

    1. UNI WIRELESS SERVICE REPORTED AUGUST 21 FROM NEW DELHI THAT
    EX-RULER OF GWALIOR MADHAV RAO SCINDIA RESIGNED FROM JANA SANGH
    AND HAS OFFERED SUPPORT TO MRS GANDHI'S NEW ECONOMIC PROGRAM
    WHICH HE REPORTEDLY CONVEYED IN A LETTER TO THE PRIME MINISTER.
    SCINDIA, ACCORDING TO OUR INFORMATION, WENT INTO HIDING SOON
    AFTER THE EMERGENCY. HIS MOTHER, MRS VIJAYA RAJE SCINDIA,
    VICE PRESIDENT OF JANA SANGH, IS BELIEVED TO HAVE BEEN
    ARRESTED IN NEW DELHI ON JUNE 29 AFTER OFFERING SATYAGRAHA.

    AS REPORTED EARLIER, THE SCINDIA FAMILY AND THE BUSINESSES
    OWNED BY IT ATTRACTED THE ATTENTION OF INCOME TAX
    AUTHORITIES AND WAS SUBJECTED TO SEARCHES INCLUDING SEIZURE OF
    IMPORTANT BUSINESS DOCUMENTS. IN OUR VIEW, SCINDIA BUCKLED UNDER
    STRONG GOVERNMENT PRESSURES WHICH, IF CONTINUED, COULD
    HAVE BEEN RUINOUS FINANCIALLY FOR HIM. IN RECENT PAST, WE
    UNDERSTOOD THAT SCINDIA WAS WITHDRAWING FROM ACTIVE JANA
    SANGH POLITICS IN FAVOR OF HIS EXPANDING BUSINESS. HOWEVER,
    HIS DETERMINED MOTHER INFLUENCED HIM TO CONTINUE IN THE
    PARTY AT LEAST FORMALLY, THOUGH CLEAVAGE BETWEEN THE MOTHER
    AND SON ON USING FAMILY WEALTH FOR PARTY USE WAS GROWING.

    2. MADHAV RAO SCINDIA IS THE SECOND MEMBER OF
    PARLIAMENT FROM MADHYA PRADESH TO HAVE RESIGNED FROM JANA
    SANGH. HIS EXIT IS LIKELY TO AFFECT THE PUBLIC IMAGE OF THE
    PARTY IN THE CONSERVATIVE, TRADITION-BOUND NORTHERN MADHYA
    PRADESH. IN ANY CASE, JANA SANGH IS FAST LOSING ITS MASS
    STRENGTH IN THE STATE THROUGH DEPLETION OF ITS RANK AND FILE
    IN THE LAST SIX WEEKS. SCINDIA'S DISASSOCIATION WITH THE
    PARTY IS LIKELY TO HURT IT MORE THAN EVER BEFORE. SETHI
    REPORTEDLY IS THE MOST REPRESSIVE OF THE CHIEF MINISTERS AS
    FAR AS JANA SANGH IS CONCERNED, FOLLOWED PERHAPS BY BANSI
    LAL OF HARYANA. THE RSS-BASED CADRE OF JANA SANGH IS WORST
    AFFECTED IN MADHYA PRADESH. WE LEARN THAT ONE OF ITS
    IMPORTANT FUNCTIONARIES DR SHEJWALKAR OF GWALIOR WHO WAS
    ESCAPING MISA ARREST TILL NOW WAS RECENTLY ROUNDED UP. LITTLE
    IS KNOWN ABOUT OTHERS SUCH AS KHUSHABHAU THAKRE,
    PYARE LAL KHANDELWAL AND DR PATANKAR.

    It was a clever move by the Scindias, who have always been with the rulers of the Nation.

    That legacy continues.

    Aunty is in BJP and may soon rule Rajasthan, while nephew merrily tinkers away at policies as a Union Minister of the Congress!

    No I think these are different subjects - should remain separate.
