Kamal Nath, being the top favourite of late Indira Gandhi, is certainly a well-deserving candidate. Addressing him, the late Indira Gandhi had once said, "This is my third son" which very well indicates how close he was to the Congress chief. Gandhi said the so while introducing Kamal Nath to the people of Chhindwara. It is this constituency from which Kamal Nath has been elected to the Parliament nine times.
Nath, the Kanpur-born politician, has been leading his party in Madhya Pradesh since quite long and it is under his endeavour that top party leaders like Digvijaya Singh and Jyotiraditya Scindia have got to realise that groupism might be a reason for his party's 15-year-long "vanvas" in Madhya Pradesh.
Other than the Kamal Nath's oath-taking, another swearing-in ceremony scheduled for the same day is Bhupesh Baghel in Chhattisgarh. Rahul Gandhi and other leading leaders of the Congress party have visited the Chhattisgarh event as well.
