Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath palms over his resignation to Governor Lalji Tandon. Nath will proceed as a caretaker chief minister.

Ending days of political uncertainty in Madhya Pradesh, Chief Minister Kamal Nath on Friday resigned to carry down curtains on the 15-month-old Congress authorities within the state.

“In my 40 years of public life, I have always followed politics of probity and given priority to democratic values. Whatever has happened in the last two weeks is a new chapter in the devaluation of democratic values,” he stated in his resignation letter to Governor Lalji Tandon.

Wishing good luck to his successor, he stated he would all the time prolong his cooperation for the event of the state.

Nath had taken the oath of the workplace on December 17, 2018. Before handing over his resignation, he instructed the reporters on the CM home that he tried to offer a brand new id to the state. He accused the BJP of making an attempt to destabilize his authorities from day one. He alleged that the BJP didn’t just like the marketing campaign he launched towards the mafia which proliferated throughout the 15-year rule of the BJP.

“I want character certificate from people, not the BJP,” he stated. The BJP plotted towards his authorities from the start, he claimed. “Who took the MLAs to Bengaluru?” he requested insinuating that the BJP organized flights for the insurgent MLAs.

Former CM and senior BJP chief Shivraj Singh Chouhan led BJP MLAs to the meeting saying he was there to honor the Supreme Court-mandated belief vote.

The resignation of 22 MLAs, together with six ministers, had plunged the Congress-ruled authorities into disaster final week. With the resignation of 16 extra MLAs on Thursday night time, the power of Congress has come right down to 92 from 108. The power of the House has additionally been diminished to 206.
