Congress leader Jyotiraditya Scindia on Monday outrightly rejected all the rumours concerning the removal of the name of the grand old party from his Twitter bio. News agency ANI reported that Scindia said he had changed his bio a month ago on people's advice to make it shorter.   

Scindia's bio now reads: "public servant and cricket enthusiast". 

The supporters of Jyotiraditya Scindia have been pitching for him to be made party president in Madhya Pradesh, ever since Kamal Nath was sworn in as the Chief Minister.

The move has been scuttled by Digvijay Singh and Kamal Nath, both the leaders pushing for the Ajay Singh, son of late leader Arjun Singh for the post of Madhya Pradesh Congress President post, said a source.

The younger lot, in the Grand Old Party, perceived to be close to Rahul Gandhi, has been disenchanted at the way of functioning with senior leaders mostly blocking their path.

Former Haryana Congress President Ashok Tanwar who left Congress has said that young leaders were being "politically finished" by the seniors.
