22 rebel Congress MLAs from Madhya Pradesh join BJP

The state assembly speaker Narmada Prasad Prajapati on late Thursday night accepted the resignations of the 16 rebel Congress MLAs who have been staying in Bengaluru since March 9. Resignations of 6 ministers were already accepted earlier.

22 rebel Congress MLAs from Madhya Pradesh, including six cabinet ministers who resigned along with Jyotiraditya Scindia recently, joined Bharatiya Janata Party on Saturday at the party’s President JP Nadda’s residence.

Nadda welcomed them into the political party by offering them a party stole. Apart from Jyotiraditya Scindia, senior BJP leaders from Madhya Pradesh Kailash Vijayvargiya and Narendra Singh Tomar were present when the rebel Congress MLAs joined the BJP. Madhya Pradesh Governor NP Prajapati has accepted the resignation of all 22 rebel MLAs including the six cabinet ministers of Kamal Nath government, all of whom left the Congress along with senior leader Jyotiraditya Scindia.

The Cabinet Ministers who resigned from the government are Imarti Devi, Tulsi Silawat, Pradyuman Singh Tomar, Mahendra Singh Sisodia, Govind Singh Rajput, and Prabhuram Chaudhary. The 16 MLAs are Jajpal Singh Jajji, Brajendra Singh Yadav, Ranvir Singh Jatav, Kamlesh Jatav, Girraj Dandotiya, Manoj Choudhary, OPS Bhadoriya, Raksha Santram Sironiya, Suresh Dhakad, Rajyavardhan Singh, Bisahulal Singh, Hardeep Singh Dang, Jasmant Singh Jatav, Munnalal Goyal, Raghuraj Kansana and Aidal Singh Kansana.

The Supreme court on Thursday had asked Kamal Nath government to conduct floor test before 5 pm on Friday, but Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh Kamal Nath resigned from the post before that as his government fell short of numbers.

Kamal Nath addressed the media saying, “After today, comes tomorrow, and after tomorrow, another day. And that day will come”, accusing the BJP of trying to ‘destabilize’ his government and holding Congress MLAs captive in Karnataka to topple the state government.
