When he was asked about the difference in the working styles of Manmohan Singh and Narendra Modi as prime minister, Scindia said, “I believe that it is difficult to make a comparison between the two. Zameen aasman ka antar hai [there is a world of difference] between the two leaders[PM Modi is] result-oriented, dynamic decision-making.”

He said, “My experience of the past four months says that there is a result-oriented productivity-driven system in place [under this government] which is a golden opportunity for people like me who have a banking sector background before coming to politics.”

Scindia is one of the high-profile ministers in the Narendra Modi government who has a past in a non-Bharatiya Janata Party. He had served as a Union minister under former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.

He joined the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in 2020 and became Union minister in the Modi government in July this year.

On the reasons for his exit from the Congress, Scindia said, “The Congress is a party where no entry or exit interviews are conducted.”

Scindia’s resignation from Congress led to the fall of the government of the party in Madhya Pradesh last year. More than 25 MLAs of the Congress had resigned from the party to follow Scindia in joining the BJP.

In the by-polls, Scindia ensured a victory of a majority of the defecting leaders, some of whom were inducted into the BJP’s government in Madhya Pradesh. The bypolls also propelled Scindia to the central government as the civil aviation minister.
