BHOPAL: In a rushed special session of the state assembly, the BJP led by Shivraj Singh Chouhan demonstrated its majority on Tuesday through a confidence motion that was unanimously approved on the floor of the House. MLAs in Congress remained absent from the House. The BJP has 107 MLAs and obtained a total of 112 votes. The total strength of the Chamber after the resignation of 22 followers of Jyotiraditya Scindia and the death of two seated MLAs is 206. The simple majority, in the Chamber, is 204.

BJP gained the support of five members of the BSP, SP and independents who formed an alliance in the Kamal Nath government that fell on Friday. Due to Corona’s propagation precautions, it was unclear who of the total of seven BSP-SP-Independents was present in the House and voted for the BJP. Opposition to Congress stayed completely away from the state assembly session and voting. Not a single MLA from the Congress party was present in the House. Speaking to reporters on Tuesday morning, former PC Minister Sharma said: “Today, MLAs in Congress will not go to the House. We will attend the Chamber only on the 26th ”.

However, shortly after the Motion of Trust was passed in the House, the assembly was suspended until March 27 due to Corona’s fear. Chief Minister

Shivraj Singh Chouhan was sworn in
Monday at 9 p.m. and midnight, the new government called a special four-day session from Tuesday to Friday. BJP MJs received a whip and attended sports masks. Since former President NP Prajapati resigned on Monday night, the BJP obtained the highest-ranking MLA from Malhargarh’s seat and former Minister Jagdish Deora in the chair.

Former BJP Minister of Legislative Affairs Narottam Mishra said: “We do not appoint a protective speaker. But it was because of the highest-ranking MLA in the House. ”

The confidence motion was proposed in the House by Prime Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan and passed unanimously by all those present in the House. After the assembly was adjourned until March 27, Narottam Mishra said the supplemental budget to be presented in the House will now be taken only on March 27. Meanwhile, the Indian Electoral Commission has postponed the Rajya Sabha elections that were scheduled for March 26. Eighteen seats from seven states, including three from Madhya Pradesh, would go to vote, which is now suspended until further notice.
