BJP request Madhya Pradesh Governor for floor test of Kamal Nath led “minority government”

The opposition party in Madhya Pradesh, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Monday wrote a letter to the Governor Anandiben Patel claiming that Chief Minister Kamal Nath’s government is in minority and requesting her to call for a special session.

Leader of Opposition in Assembly and BJP MLA Gopal Bhargava said his party will ask the Governor to convene a special session of the state Assembly “to discuss important issues including the farm loan waiver and test the Congress governments strength”.

Speaking to the PTI he said that the Congress government led by Kamal Nath was dumping papers at former Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan’s residence claiming that loans of 21 lakh farmers in Madhya Pradesh have been waived.

In 2018 December, the Congress won 114 seats while the BJP was limited to 109 seats in the 230 member assembly. The majority mark was 116 seats. The Congress  formed government with support from two BSP MLAs, one Samajwadi Party member and 4 independents.

This political drama comes a day after the Lok Sabha polls concluded and the Exit polls predicting a BJP led NDA government once again.
