When prince of Gwalior Jyotiraditya Scindia first raised a banner of revolt against the then Chief Minister Kamal Nath in Madhya Pradesh, the first thing he did was to change his Twitter profile. He removed “Congress” from his profile. Thus began the revolt of the MLAs supporting him. He Later it turned out that he and his MLAs left the Congress and joined the BJP en masse. The MLAs have all resigned and are awaiting bypolls to contrest again.

But, now there is again a change in Jyotiraditya Scindia's Twitter profile. He has removed BJP from his profile.  This set the rumour mills abuzz about whether he is planning to move out of the BJP or is he trying to threaten the BJP leadership over unfulfilled promises. Some MLAs close to him say that this is a warning to the BJP, which is taking him lightly.

Now the rumour mill has gone into a tizzy wondering what the next move of Jyotiraditya would be. Will he rejoin the Congress Party or will he form a regional party and enter into hard bargain with both the Congress and the BJP? Will the king become the king maker.
