Patwari told PTI on Sunday, “The BJP misuses the media and questions the integrity of a person and this has come to light. I had a talk with Kamal Nath ji who told me that the reports floating in the media were part of a conspiracy. He told me that he was a Congressman and will remain in Congress."

“His relationship with the Gandhi family is unshakable. He has lived with the ideology of Congress and will remain with it till the end. This is what he told me,” the Congress leader added.

Reports also suggested that Nakul Nath was likely to leave Congress while contesting from his father's bastion Chhindwara constituency as he announced his candidacy before the party made any declarations. He told the party workers in Chhindwara, "This time, too, I will be your candidate for Lok Sabha elections. Rumours are going around whether Kamal Nath or Nakul Nath would contest the election, I would like to make it clear that Kamal Nath won't contest the election, I will."
