Gwalior-Chambal in Madhya Pradesh welcomes everyone and there is no problem if Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi campaigns for her party in the region for the upcoming assembly bypolls, said BJP Rajya Sabha MP Jyotiraditya Scindia .

He exuded confidence the BJP will win all the 28 seats going to the bypolls, schedule for which is yet to be announced by the Election Commission.

My Madhya Pradesh and the Gwalior-Chambal region welcomes everyone. There is no problem in it, Scindia told reporters at Rajpur in Ashoknagar district.

The former Union minister was replying to questions about reports that Gandhi is likely to campaign in the bypolls especially in the Gwalior-Chambal region.

The region, considered a stronghold of Scindia, accounts for 16 of the 28 bypolls-bound seats.
