FactionsEdit

Madhya Pradesh Vikas Congress was a faction in the Congress Party from 1996 to 1998. MPVC was founded by former aviation minister Madhavrao Scindia, after he was refused an INC ticket for the 1996 Lok Sabha elections.

Scindia won a seat [6] as an MPVC candidate as a result of hard work & strong campaign led by his workers & followers who had also resigned from INC.[7] In 1998 MPVC merged into Indian National Congress.
