MLA Govind Singh Rajput of Madhya Pradesh is in Bangalore. He said that Kamal Nath never heard him for more than 15 minutes. So who would he talk to for the development of his region? He said that Scindia is his leader.
The Supreme Court has announced notifications to Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath and his government over an appeal filed by the BJP seeking a trust vote in the assembly.
The court will hear the case again tomorrow.
Kamal Nath on Monday stated that he had the numbers after his Congress government was asked by the Governor to prove its majority by Tuesday, hours after it seemed to have snagged a 10-day breather with the assembly gathering being adjourned until March 26 over coronavirus.
Letter to Kamal Nath, Governor Lalji Tandon said: “If you don’t take a floor test by March 17, it will be assumed that you have lost your majority.” The Governor also called the Chief Minister’s letter to him criticising him for asking the Speaker for a trust vote today as “meaningless, baseless” and against constitutional values.
What does the number game say? BJP – 107
Congress – 91 (+1 speaker)
Rebel MLA – 16 (not yet accepting resignation)
BSP – 2
SP – 1
Independents – 4
