Jyotiraditya Scindia’s ‘Tiger Zinda Hai’ dig elicits taunts

Kamal Nath, whose government in Madhya Pradesh had crashed when 22 MLAs exited with Jyotiraditya Scindia, returned the jibe with his own


Indian National Congress (INC) politician Kamal Nath, whose government in Madhya Pradesh crashed when 22 MLAs exited with Jyotiraditya Scindia, returned the jibe with his own. Jyotiraditya Scindia’s “Tiger abhi zinda hai” comment, inspired by the title of a film featuring Salman Khan, elicited responses from both the politicians it was apparently aimed at — his former INC colleagues Kamal Nath and Digvijaya Singh.

On 2 June, after many of the MLAs who quit the INC and followed him to the were included in the Madhya Pradesh government, Jyotiraditya Scindia borrowed from the popular Hindi film title to deliver a sharp message to his former seniors, accusing them of trying to denigrate him.

On 3 June, addressing a virtual rally in Bhopal, Jyotiraditya Scindia went from tigers to eagles. “Many cheels (eagles) are circling around me and attacking me, but only those who have some are attacked by birds of prey,” he said, adding, “and I want to remind them again — Tiger Zinda Hai.”

INC politician Kamal Nath, whose government in Madhya Pradesh crashed when 22 MLAs exited with Jyotiraditya Scindia, returned his jibes with his own. “Which tiger is zinda (alive)? Paper tiger or a circus one?” quipped Kamal Nath.

Digvijaya Singh, on social media, harked back to a time when he used to “hunt tigers” with Scindia’s father Madhavrao Scindia, a veteran INC politician who died in a plane crash in 2001.

“When hunting was not prohibited, I and Madhavrao Scindia used to hunt tigers. But ever since former Prime Minister brought the Wildlife Protection Act, I shoot them only on camera,” the former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister tweeted.

But in another tweet, he appeared to take a shot at Scindia. “You know the true character of a tiger. Only one tiger remains in one jungle,” wrote Singh.

On 2 June, Scindia had made the “tiger” comment more than once. “I will certainly respond to the INC, but I would like to remind both Kamal Nath and Digvijaya Singh that Tiger abhi zinda hai (tiger is still alive).” He repeated the remark at a party function later, according to Press Trust of India.

Scindia quit the INC, his party of 19 years, in after a long feud with the Madhya Pradesh veterans. His exit brought the 15-month-old Kamal Nath government down and enabled BJP’s Shivraj Singh Chouhan to return to power for the fourth time.

Chouhan took charge in and functioned with five ministers amid a disagreement over ministerial posts, with Scindia pushing his loyalists, especially those who expected to be rewarded for defecting from the INC.

After long negotiations, Scindia prevailed and snagged ministries for 11 of his candidates, claiming 41% of the cabinet. This meant that Chouhan was forced to give up on some of his candidates, including experienced former ministers.

In 2018, when the lost the state election, Chouhan had made the same comment — “Tiger abhi zinda hai” — to indicate that he would make a comeback.

महाभारत का एक श्लोक अधूरा पढ़ा जाता है क्यों...??

शायद गांधी जी की वजह से...

"अहिंसा परमो धर्म:"

जबकि पूर्ण श्लोक इस तरह से है:-

"अहिंसा परमो धर्म:,
धर्म हिंसा तदेव च"।

अर्थात :- अहिंसा मनुष्य का परम धर्म है...
किंतु धर्म की रक्षा के लिए हिंसा करना उससे भी श्रेष्ठ है...!!
