SENIOR CONGRESS leader Jyotiraditya Scindia has threatened to take to the streets against his own party’s government in Madhya Pradesh if the demands of guest teachers are not accepted.

“Our manifesto (for Assembly elections) had promised to fulfil your demand. The manifesto is a sacred book for us. If every promise is not fulfilled, I will take to the streets with you.
