Madhya Pradesh: 16 Ministers Quit, New Cabinet In Works

Amid speculation that 17 legislators, considered loyal to Jyotirditya Scindia, planning to plunge Kamal Nath government in Madhya Pradesh in crisis, 16 state minister tendered their resignation to the chief minister, who will now reconstitute the state cabinet.

The ministers were present in a meeting with Chief Minister Kamal Nath on Monday night to discuss the impending crisis.

Earlier on Monday, Kamal Nath said that he had discussed the political situation with party chief Sonia Gandhi and alleged that the Bharatiya Janata Party was perturbed as its “corruption over its 15-year rule is going to be exposed”.

The Chief Minister also said that Congress MLAs who were reportedly missing have returned and informed him that they were on `tirth yatra’.

Allegations were levelled against the BJP for reportedly holding hostages at least eight Madhya Pradesh MLAs against their will in ITC Resort in Gurugram’s Manesar and Bengaluru.

In 2018 Assembly results, Congress, which won 114 seats in the 230-member Assembly formed the government with the support of four Independent MLAs and two BSP MLAs, and a legislator from the Samajwadi Party (SP).

The BJP had secured 109 seats in the state Assembly. (ANI)
