Congress Moves MLAs Back To Bhopal, Ahead Of Madhya Pradesh Floor Test
New Delhi: Ahead of Monday's floor test mandated by the Governor, the Congress has shifted all its MLAs to Bhopal. The MLAs were lodged at a resort in Jaipur. Chief Minister Kamal Nath has called a cabinet meeting today.
Governor Lalji Tandon on Saturday asked Speaker Narmada Prasad Prajapati to hold a floor test on Monday.
After the resignations of six rebel ministers the direction came, which brought down the majority mark in t5he state assembly to 113, two less than the number of MLAs currently supporting the congress.
The Congress, which alleged that the BJP was trying to topple its government, shifted its MLAs to Rajasthan, another Congress-ruled state, last week.
The party has also alleged that its MLAs in Bengaluru have been forcibly confined to the resort by the BJP and two of its ministers, who had gone to meet them at the hotel, were assaulted and detained by the police.
Alleging that the matter is a national issue, the Congress said it would approach the Supreme Court.
If all the resignations are accepted, the Congress's strength will come way below the new majority mark of 104, and the BJP, with 107 MLAs, can form the government.
Chief Minister Kamal Nath's government initially had 120 MLAs - just four over the majority mark of 116 in the 230-member Assembly.
