Six months after forming the new government in Madhya Pradesh, the Kamal Nath government may be in trouble. The BJP has demanded a special assembly session for a floor test.
The Leader of Opposition in Madhya Pradesh state assembly, Gopal Bhargava has claimed that the Congress government in Madhya Pradesh is in minority. Bhargava said, “It will fall on its own (MP Government), I don’t believe in horse-trading but I feel its time has come and it will have to go soon.”
In the state elections that concluded in December 2018, Congress won 114 seats while the BJP got 109. With external support from Bahujan Samaj Party and Samajwadi Party, the Congress had formed the government.
BJP’s demand comes a day after the exit polls in the general assembly elections predicting that the centre is forming an NDA government with Prime Minister Modi returning for his second term. In fact, a few exit polls have predicted that the BJP may win as many as 24-26 out of 29 seats for Lok Sabha in Madhya Pradesh.
BJP national general secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya has also said that the fall of Kamal Nath government is imminent. Meanwhile, Kamal Nath has hit out on the BJP and adviced them to wait till the election results are out. “Wait till May 23. We have seen so many exit polls going horribly wrong in the past. Don’t be impatient”, he said.
