On Friday, Madhya Pradesh CM Kamal Nath announced that he is tendering his resignation, hours ahead of the scheduled floor test.
“I have decided to tender my resignation to the Governor today,” Kamal Nath said while addressing a press conference in Bhopal.
On Thursday, the Apex Court had ordered a floor test in the state Assembly to be held on Friday. While addressing the press conference, Mr Kamal Nath said that the BJP had tried to “destabilise” his Govt. & added, that his Govt. “tried best to give a new direction to the state in a span of 15 months”.
Kamal Nath also accused the Bharatiya Janta Party of holding Congress’s MLAs captive in Karnataka in order to topple the Govt. in the state.
He said that “Over the last fifteen months, I have worked for the progress of Madhya Pradesh. BJP got fifteen years but I only got fifteen months, but during this time people of Madhya Pradesh know the conspiracy that BJP has indulged in. From day one, BJP began plotting. The party also held our MLAs captive in Karnataka. 22 of our MLAs were held captive in Bengaluru. This was politics spending crores of rupees”.
Kamal Nath added, “We delivered on our 400 promises in 15 months, BJP did not like it. It could not stomach our achievements. We also acted against the mafia, it could not thrive”.
“People will not forgive those who went against their wishes,” he said.
