Madhya Pradesh Political Crisis Highlights: Political turmoil is currently on in Madhya Pradesh. Kamal Nath government is expected to fall soon collapse as Congress leader Jyotiraditya Scindia resigned from Congress minutes after meeting Prime Minister Narendra Modi along with Home Minister Amit Shah. Following Scindia, as many as 21 MLAs loyal to him have also submitted their resignation to the Governor, as per ANI. The meeting took place amid indications that Scindia might join BJP to topple the Madhya Pradesh government. According to news agency PTI, Scindia first met Union Home Minister Amit Shah, and then the two leaders met Modi at the prime minister’s residence. Scindia has been upset with the Congress leadership with his marginalisation in the affairs of the Madhya Pradesh Congress. Reports suggest that Scindia may join the BJP.
Meanwhile, former CM Shivaraj Singh Chauhan, who may return to power if the Kamal Nath government falls in Madhya Pradesh, today refused to comment on the situation. “This is Congress’ internal matter and I would not like to comment on it. We had said on the first day that we are not interested in bringing down the government,” Chauhan was quoted as saying by news agency ANI. On Monday, the Congress government in the state plunged into a crisis on Monday as a sulking Jyotiraditya Scindia, along with 17 MLAs, virtually revolted, prompting Chief Minister Kamal Nath to call a late-night cabinet meeting where around 20 ministers resigned reposing faith in his leadership. Nath alleged that the BJP was adopting immoral ways to “destabilise my government” and vowed not to let it happen, PTI reported.
