Congress leader and former chief minister Kamal Nath has finally revealed what led to the collapse of his government in Madhya Pradesh According to news website MPBreaking, Kamal Nath has held party’s general secretary Digvijay Singh responsible for the fall of his government.
Kamal Nath said that Digvijay had given false assurance that all the MLAs are united and his government is safe. According to the website, Kamal Nath told this to a news channel.
Kamal Nath had earlier blamed BJP
Interestingly, Kamal Nath has been so far blaming the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for this. “I proved my majority several times in the past 15 months. BJP ruled for 15 years whereas I got just 15 months. BJP conspired with a leader and 22 MLAs and they took the MLAs to Bengaluru,” Kamal Nath had said during the press conference.
However, Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan had rejected it saying the “internal conflict” of Congress led to the situation.
“If a govt topples due to its own internal conflict then we can’t do anything. You can see that we were not in the game to form or topple a govt. They (Congress) should do some self-introspection that what gave rise to such a situation,” Chouhan was quoted as saying by news agency ANI.
Kamal Nath had even blamed the Centre for delaying the lockdown despite the World Health Organization (WHO) declaring Covid-19 as a pandemic.
“It is obvious that Parliament was run to show that everything is normal and only after Shivraj Singh Chouhan took the oath, the lockdown was announced,” he had said.
Kamal Nath resigned from his post of the chief minister on March 20 after his government was reduced to a minority following the resignation of 22 Congress MLAs and Shivraj Singh came to power.
