With the resignation of Kamal Nath, 15-month-old Congress rule in the state came to an end.

Kamal Nath’s government lost majority after the resignation on 22 MLAs, who are in support of Jyotiraditya Scindia, who recently moved to the BJP.

Before resigning Kamal Nath addressed the media and alleged that its was BJP conspiracy in the state to pull down the elected government.

He said that he worked for the development of the state and BJP did not want action against the mafias operating in the state.

The outgoing Chief Minister alleged: “This breach of trust was against the people of Madhya Pradesh, not against me. People will not forgive those who went against their wishes. Twenty-two of our MLAs were held captive in Bengaluru. This was politics spending crores of rupees.”

“I got the mandate for five years but got only 15 months. BJP ruled for 15 years and from day one, it was a conspiracy of the BJP to destabilise the government,” he added.

Former Chief Minister Digvijaya Singh was among the audience, as were many of the Congress MLAs.

The Supreme Court has asked for the vote of confidence to be taken up on Friday till 5 pm.

The road to power in Madhya Pradesh for the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), however, cleared up with Kamal Nath’s resignation.

Sources in the BJP said the party will meet the Governor in the evening and stake claim to form the government in the state. All the BJP MLAs have been asked to be in the state.
