President Rule Likely In Madhya Pradesh

As reported there is trouble in the politics of Madhya Pradesh from Tuesday night.  Kamal Nath government is seen in crisis.  Today Wednesday can be important for the politics of Madhya Pradesh.  

Congress has accused BJP of buying and bonding Congress MLAs. Former Chief Minister Digvijay Singh has said that BJP's Rampal Singh, Narottam Mishra, Sanjay Pathak have taken the MLAs hostage in the hotel and offered money to him.  

He has also said that 4 MLAs are with BJP.  Sources in Congress state that the BJP has taken away eight MLAs in Gurugram, Haryana.  Out of 8, four are Congress MLAs, one Independent and BSP, SP MLA.

There are 230 assembly seats in Madhya Pradesh.  In the 2018 assembly elections, the Congress won 114 seats, the BJP got 109 seats.  Both parties were far from the majority mark.  Four independents, two BSP and one SP were also elected in the elections.  After the election results, the SP and BSP announced their support to a Congress.  

After this the Kamal Nath government got the support of 120 MLAs.  But the SP and BSP MLAs have expressed their displeasure with the government many times and if both parties do not have the majority figure then the President's rule can be imposed in the state.  In such a situation, President's rule can be imposed in Madhya Pradesh on the recommendation of the Governor.
