Madhya Pradesh crisis: The political tide changes, who will ride the wave? The | Bhopal News

BHOPAL: Celebrations erupted in the BJP camp shortly after Kamal Nath resigned as Prime Minister. Hundreds of party workers packed the BJP headquarters in Bhopal on Friday afternoon, disregarding Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s advice to avoid the crowds in light of the Coronavirus scare.

BJP Vice President Shivraj Singh Chouhan, who is believed to be in line for a fourth term as CM, shared sweets with state party chief V D Sharma, LOP Gopal Bhargava and several MLAs.

“If a government collapses due to its own internal conflict, then we cannot do anything. You can see that we were not in the game to form or overthrow a government. They (Congress) should do an introspection about what led to this situation. Chouhan said. A celebratory dinner was planned at his residence, but it was canceled as a precaution against Covid-19.

“Prime Minister Narendra Modi has given the alert to desist from holding mass meetings of BJP workers. In view of the Coronavirus warning and alert, I have canceled the dinner organized for BJP MLAs and leaders at my residence, “said Chouhan.

Union Minister Narendra Singh Tomar is likely to arrive in Bhopal to discuss the next action plan. Tomar said the congressional government collapsed “on its own due to internal disputes.”

Chouhan, Sharma and Bhargava joined their main party colleagues, Vinay Sahastrabuddhe and Kailash Vijayvargiya, to adorn the busts of party ideologues Pt Deendayal Upadhyay, Kushabhau Thakre and Vijayaraje Scindia.

“The government failed to satisfy its own ministers and MLA. The smoke has finally cleared from the political arena, ”said Bhargava. Sharma also hit Congress and said: “When the Supreme Court ordered a floor test, the CM fled the battle. The Congressional government collapsed on its own and relieved the public. ”

Former Union Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia, whose defection caused the collapse of the Congress government, said it was a victory for the people. “I have always believed that politics should be a means of public service, but the state government had strayed from this path. The truth has won again. Satyamev Jayate, “he said.

Earlier in the day, BJP held a legislative party meeting at a Sehore resort to prepare for the floor test. Chouhan said that the BJP MLAs will meet at Vidhan Sabha according to Supreme Court directives. However, Nath’s resignation came before the vote of confidence.

Sources said that prior to the formation of the BJP government, independent MLAs and former Minister Pradeep Jaiswal, two MLAs from BSP and one from SP have also extended their support for BJP. Independent Surela Singh Shera MLAs also met with BJP leader Narottam Mishra after Kamal Nath’s resignation.
