Kamal Nath accepted defeat
On the results of the by-election, Kamal Nath said, “We accept the people’s mandate. We tried our best to reach the public. We will fulfill our responsibilities by remaining in opposition.”
On the other hand, Chief Minister Shivraj tweeted and said – “I wish all the winning candidates. Those who could not succeed, should not be desperate, your struggle for public interest should continue.”
Jyotiraditya Scindia once again targeted Kamal Nath and Digvijay Singh after the by-election results. He said – “The results have proved that Kamal Nath and Digvijay Singh are traitors.” In fact, after joining the BJP, Congress leaders constantly called him a traitor.
