Bhopal: Expressing the readiness of his authorities for a floor test within the Assembly, Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath on Friday accused the BJP of holding 22 Congress MLAs in captivity.

Nath met Tandon and submitted a letter to him accusing the BJP of being concerned in horse-trading and holding the Congress MLAs in captivity. Nath met Tandon within the midst of a political disaster in
the state triggered by the resignation of the 22 Congress MLAs three days in the past. He met the governor at around 11 am and submitted the three-page letter to him.

In the letter, launched by a Congress spokesman to the media, Nath expressed his readiness to carry the floor test during the price range session starting from 16 March. Nath additionally talked about the sequence of occasions from the intervening night time of three March and 4 March to 10 March and claimed there have been incidents of horse-trading during this interval.

In these circumstances, the very edifice of democracy is in peril, Nath wrote within the letter. Nath additionally informed the governor to make use of his workplace to make sure the discharge of Congress MLAs held in captivity in Bengaluru.

Nath, whose authorities are teetering getting ready to collapse following the rise up, reached Raj Bhavan to fulfill Tandon, who arrived right here on Thursday night time from Lucknow. The chief minister briefed the governor in regard to the present political scenario within the state, Congress sources stated.

The ruling Congress has alleged that 19 of the insurgent Congress MLAs, together with ministers, have been held “captive” by the BJP in a resort in Bengaluru, a cost denied by the Opposition get together.

Nath’s assembly with the governor comes amid unconfirmed stories that six ministers, stated to be near former Congress chief Jyotiraditya Scindia, will likely be coming to Bhopal from Bengaluru handy over their resignation letters in individual to the Assembly speaker.

Attempts to contact these ministers proved futile. Scindia joined the BJP on Wednesday, a day after quitting the Congress.
