Singh is being blamed for forcing Scindia quitting the Congress. According to media reports, erstwhile Kamal Nath government had denied Rajya Sabha ticket to Scindia in favour of Singh which irked him very much.

The incident was one of the many factors that prompted Scindia to defect the Congress along with 22 legislators and join the BJP.

The defection led to fall of two-year-old Kamal Nath government and formation of Shivraj Singh Chouhan government in Madhya Pradesh.
