MP crisis at flashpoint as 18 Congress MLAs fly off to Bengaluru

New Delhi/Bengaluru: The Kamal Nath-led Congress government in Madhya Pradesh seemed to teeter as 18 MLAs, including four ministers, close to former MP Jyotiraditya Scindia were on Monday flown to BJP-ruled Karnataka by a chartered flight from Delhi.

Scindia stays put in the national capital where he is waiting for the right time to announce his next move

According to airport sources in Delhi, about 18 persons, including Bankim Silawat, the son of Congress Minister Tulsi Silawat, and Scindia’s close aide Purushottam Parashar, flew from the national capital to Bengaluru in a Falcon 2000 aircraft.

Apart from the two close Scindia associates, the other MLAs includes Rajyawardhan Singh, Pradhuman Singh Tomar, Giriraj, Raksha Sinoriya, Jaswant Jatav, Suresh Dhakad, Jajpal Singh and Brijendra Yadav.

On reaching Bengaluru, the MLAs were taken from the old HAL airport to three different places to keep them all away from media glare,” said sources.

On the other hand Jyotiraditya Scindia stays put in the national capital where he is waiting for the right time to announce his next move, sources added.

The shocker for the Madhya Pradesh government comes on a day when Chief Minister Kamal Nath met Congress chief Sonia Gandhi at her residence in New Delhi and briefed her about the current political situation besides discussing on the party’s Rajya Sabha candidates for the biennial election.

Since Scindia lost in the May 2019 general elections from the Guna Lok Sanha seat, he has been trying to become the party’s state unit chief, a post which the Chief Minister continues hold on to.
