This, however, was the beginning of Arjun Singh's political downfall. An intense rivalry between him and Sharad Pawar saw Narasimha Rao eventually emerge as PM. And his protege Digvijaya Singh took over as Chief Minister of MP.

Although Arjun Singh's illustrious career ensured some effective political strategies, there were also several controversies that reared up, the most significant being his alleged role in the Churhat Lottery scandal of the 1980's during his tenure as MP Chief Minister.

For weeks on end, the Congress ageing patriarch Arjun Singh had kept the party on tenterhooks with his silence on the 1984 Bhopal Gas Tragedy during when he was the chief minister.
