Madhya Pradesh crisis: Congress decides to move its legislators to Jaipur, BJP MLAs in Gurugram

With Jyotiraditya Scindia and 22 other MLAs loyal to him quitting the Kamal Nath government in Madhya Pradesh, the Congress-led government is on the brink of collapse as the numbers stack up in BJP's favour.

A day after former Union Minister and four-time parliamentarian Jyotiraditya Scindia resigned from the Congress, the Kamal Nath-led government has further plunged into crisis. Following his lead, 22 MLAs have resigned in Madhya Pradesh and 200 workers of the party in Gwalior have followed suit.

Following the crisis in the Congress party, BJP is not willing to take any chance and have moved their MLAs to Gurugram from Bhopal late on Tuesday night.

The BJP MLAs are reportedly staying at ITC Grand Bharat in Gurugram.

“We have come here in a festive mood and we will stay here and enjoy for the next few days,” Kailash Vijayvargiya told reporters after arriving at New Delhi.

The Congress party after losing 22 MLAs have now decided to move their flock to Congress-ruled Rajasthan to keep them away from the BJP. Madhya Pradesh Congress MLAs are likely to leave for Jaipur from Bhopal on Wednesday amidst the political crisis in the state.

In a dramatic turn of events on Tuesday, Jyotiraditya Scindia met Amit Shah and Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Delhi and tendered his resignation from Congress membership to Sonia Gandhi.  In his resignation letter to Sonia Gandhi, Jyotiraditya Scindia said it is time for him to move on. 

With Jyotiraditya Scindia and 22 other MLAs loyal to him quitting the Kamal Nath government in Madhya Pradesh, the Congress-led government is on the brink of collapse as the numbers stack up in BJP’s favour.

Meanwhile, Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath on Tuesday put up a brave face to state that he was confident that his government will not collapse following the crisis triggered by the resignation Congress leader Jyotiraditya Scindia and the resignation of at least 22 MLAs loyal to him.
