Madhya Pradesh: Kamal Nath government must face floor test on Friday by 5 pm, rules Supreme Court on plea filed by BJP

The court also said that if the rebel MLAs want to join the assembly then both Karnataka DGP and Madhya Pradesh DGP should provide them security.

The Supreme Court has said that Kamal Nath government in Madhya Pradesh has to face floor test till 5 pm on Friday, 20 March to end the situation of uncertainty in the state. The apex court issued this order in response to a plea filed by the former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan seeking directions to conduct an immediate floor test in the assembly.

The top court said that that floor test would be held by the show of hands in accordance with the law and the floor test should be video recorded. The court also said that if the rebel MLAs want to join the assembly then both Karnataka DGP and Madhya Pradesh DGP should provide them security.

The Supreme court had served a notice to the Kamal Nath government on Tuesday on the plea filed by the former CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan seeking a response to conduct an immediate floor test for a stable government in the state of Madhya Pradesh. “The session of the MP Assembly that has been deferred shall be reconvened on March 20. A single agenda for the assembly — to hold floor test on March 20. Citing by show of hands,” the order passed by the apex court read.

In the plea, BJP had stated that “the Congress Government in Madhya Pradesh led by Kamal Nath has a lack of confidence and his government has been reduced to a minority. It has no moral, legal, democratic or constitutional right to remain in power even for a single day. All possible attempts are being made by the Honorable Chief Minister to convert his minority government into the majority by giving all possible threats to the members of the Madhya Pradesh Vidhan Sabha. The horsetrading is at its peak. Therefore, it is essential that the floor test is conducted on 16.3.2020 itself as already directed by Honorable Governor, so that it becomes absolutely clear as to whether the Honorable Chief Minister continues to enjoy the confidence of the majority of the Madhya Pradesh Vidhan Sabha.”

The Congress government in Madhya Pradesh is almost sure to lose the trust vote as 22 of its MLAs, including 6 ministers, have resigned from the assembly. The MLAs left the party after senior leader Jyotiraditya Scindia resigned from Congress and joined BJP.
