Asked about the Congress' claim of coming to power in the state, Scindia quipped he heard that 'laddoos' were stocked and even posters and banners were pasted.

“I have always maintained that better wait for the result and am always confident of getting the people's blessings, and I bow before the entire population of the state for the BJP's success,” he said.

Referring to some comments made by senior Congress leader Digvijaya Singh against him on political matters, Scindia said, “I welcome Digvijaya Singh's curses and I express gratitude towards him from my heart."
