Shivraj Singh Chouhan Takes Oath As Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister
New Delhi: Shivraj Singh Chouhan, the veteran leader of BJP had taken the oath as the Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh today, days after the Congress government of Kamal Nath fell after losing its majority.
The BJP leader became the Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh for the fourth time.
On Thursday, the Congress leader Kamal Nath had resigned, just before the Supreme Court's deadline to prove his majority in a trust vote.
22 MLA's who were loyal to Jyotiraditya Scindia took a flight to Bengaluru and resigned, after which the Congress lost its majority.
The MLAs joined BJP yesterday, tweeted Mr Scindia, who quit his party of 18 years and joined the BJP last week.
The Congress tried to reach out to the rebel MLAs but failed to win any of them back. Rejecting their appeal for more time, the Supreme Court said the uncertainty in Madhya Pradesh must end and ordered a test of strength last Thursday.
In December 2018, Kamal Nath had came to power and he resigned before the deadline, knowing it would be impossible for him to make up the numbers needed to stay in power.
