Addressing a press conference in Madhya Pradesh capital Bhopal, Kamal Nath said, “The people of this country can see the truth behind the incident where MLAs are being held hostage in Bengaluru.
The truth will come out. People will not forgive BJP which has been trying every trick to bring down my 15-month old government. BJP leaders could not digest the development work and people-friendly measure taken by my government during the last 15 months.” Nath further said that the BJP is jealous of the progress MP made under the Congress regime.
Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath on Friday (March 20, 2020) resigned from his post just a few hours before the scheduled time for the trust vote in the Assembly after accusing the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) of betraying the people’s mandate and triggering a political crisis in the Congress-ruled state.
His announced that he would submit his resignation to Governor Lalji Tandon as the BJP had destabilised his government by keeping a group of 22 Congress MLAs as a hostage in Bengaluru, the capital of Karnataka.
Kamal Nath had earlier called a meeting of the Madhya Pradesh Congress Legislature Party (CLP) started at his residence where it is believed that he was told by the party high command to resign as his government had lost majority after the resignation of 22 Congress MLAs. The CLP meeting was called ahead of the special session of Madhya assembly which was scheduled to start at 2 pm on Friday.
