Bhopal, Mar 10 : As many as 22 Congress MLAs on Tuesday resigned from the Madhya Pradesh Assembly leading to an unprecedented political crisis in the state where Congress enjoys a wafer-thin majority.
The development comes against the backdrop of Jyotiraditya Scindia resigning for Congress party membership on Tuesday morning and meeting Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Amit Shah in New Delhi.
As per sources, these 22 MLAs are slated to join Bharatiya Janata Party. The move by the MLAs could collapse the ruling Congress government in the state led by Kamal Nath. The 22 MLAs include six ministers--Tulsi Silawat, Govind Singh Rajput, Dr Prabhuram Choudhry, Imarti Devi, Pradyumna Singh Tomar and Mahendra Singh Sisodia.
Other MLAs are Hardeep Singh Dang, Rajyavardhan Singh, Brajendra Singh Yadav, Jaspal Jajji, Suresh Dhakad, Jaswant Jatav, Santram Sironia, Munnalal Goyal, Ranveer Singh Jatav, OPS Bhadoria, Kamlesh Jatav, Giriraj Dandotiya, Raghuraj Kansana, Aidalsingh Kansana, Biasahulal Singh. (UNI)
