Kamal Nath Government in Madhya Pradesh may fall

Agency News

Though Congress Chief Minister Kamal Nath is making last minute attempts to hold on power, experts predict for an imminent fall of Kamal Nath-led Congress government in Madhya Pradesh.

As of this morning Chief Minister Kamal Nath's government had 120 MLAs - just four over the majority mark of 116 in the 230-member Assembly. If the resignation of the 20 MLAs is accepted, the majority mark will be 106; the BJP will have 107 and the Congress 97.

The rest are held by the Samajwadi Party, the Bahujan Samaj Party and independents.

Should the government fall, it will be the second since the Congress-JDS government in Karnataka last year and represent a major setback to a party already struggling for relevance after two successive routs in Lok Sabha polls.
