The Kamal Nath Government in Madhya Pradesh is suffering a grave crisis as 17 MLAs have staged a rebellion, ABP News has reported.

Another MLA, Bisahu Lal Singh, reached Bhopal from Bengaluru yesterday. However, according to the report, BJP sources have said that Singh is still with them and he has gone to Bhopal only after assuring them that he will stand with the BJP when necessary. It is believed that on the first day of the new Assembly session itself, which begins on the 16th of March, the BJP will introduce a no-confidence motion which the party will hope to pass with assistance from the rebels within the Congress party.

The Kamal Nath government has 120 MLAs – four over the majority mark of 116 in the 230-member assembly. Of them, 114 are from the Congress, two from the BSP, one from the Samajwadi Party and four independents. The BJP has 107 MLAs and two seats are currently vacant.
