Congress will prove majority in the assembly: Digvijaya Singh

 

New Delhi: Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath will not resign and will prove a majority in the Assembly, senior Congress leader Digvijaya Singh (Digvijaya Singh) said this to NDTV after the resignation of Jyotiraditya Scindia alongwith his 21 MLAs. Scindia resigned from the Congress on Tuesday, along with 21 Congress MLAs from Madhya Pradesh. It is believed that Scindia is going to join BJP and he can also get a place in the cabinet.

Meanwhile, after the resignation of 21 MLAs, a decision was taken on Tuesday evening in the meeting of Madhya Pradesh Congress Legislature Party in the midst of political turmoil in Madhya Pradesh that the Congress-led state government headed by Kamal Nath will prove his majority in the assembly. After joining the meeting held at the Chief Minister’s residence, a Congress minister said that four independent MLAs who supported the government had also attended this meeting. This has given the Congress a little more strength. However, he admitted that two BSP MLAs who were supporting the government and one of the SP MLAs were absent from this meeting. It was sad for the ruling party.

It is known that in the midst of a political storm after former Union Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia left the Congress, two BSP and SP MLAs went to meet the BJP national vice president and former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chauhan at his residence here on Tuesday. Therefore, their meeting with Chauhan is being seen from the changing political scenario. However, Chauhan described it as a courtesy call on the occasion of Holi. The minister said that all the MLAs present in the meeting have expressed their faith in the leadership of Kamal Nath.

He said that Kamal Nath and the MLAs will unite and fight this battle and win. The minister said, “There is no threat to the government. Whenever the situation comes, we will prove our majority in the House. “He claimed that around 100 MLAs attended the meeting, of which four are independents.

Meanwhile, Minister PC Sharma told reporters that the MLAs who were not present in the meeting, they have been contacted. They have said that these MLAs have been misguided. Sharma said that these missing MLAs have said that they were taken for the Rajya Sabha elections and they have been cheated and signed in their resignations. He said, “We will prove our majority in the assembly.”
