BJP leader Shivraj Singh Chouhan met Madhya Pradesh Governor Lalji Tandon in Bhopal today.
Speaking to the press, Chouhan said the situation in Madhya Pradesh is a constitutional crisis and the state is not safe in the hands of a government that has no majority.
Chouhan also questioned the recent appointments approved by the Kamal Nath government. Chouhan was referring to the Senior Congress leader JP Dhanopia who took charge as the chairman of the Madhya Pradesh State Backward Classes Commission on Tuesday.
The order appointing Dhanopia as chairman of the commission was issued on Monday and he will be holding the position for the next three years.
Chouhan submitted a letter to the Governor asking him to cancel any appointment made by the Kamal Nath Government as they have no majority so far.
“People have been misusing the name of the governor and hence we met the Governor to tell him about the Congres’s intentions. Why is the Kamal Nath Government making appointments before the floor test? This is unconstitutional,” said Chouhan.
Earlier today, brother of Congress MLA Manoj Chaudhary—pro-Scindia MLA who has tendered his resignation—has moved to Supreme Court claiming that Manoj has been kidnapped and kept as a captive by BJP.
The plea says that Manoj Chaudhry, MLA from Hatpipliya has been “abducted from Dewas” and kept as a “captive” in Bengaluru.
Manoj Chaudhary was one of the 16 rebel MLAs who earlier today, moved an application before the Supreme Court claiming that none of the MLAs are under threat. The application also asked the reason behind not accepting their resignation yet.
