  • Kamal Nath declared as the new CM of Madhya Pradesh

    Congress has chosen Kamal Nath as the new chief minister of Madhya Pradesh. The Congress is back in power in Madhya Pradesh after a gap of 15 years. The only other candidate for the post of chief minister in Madhya Pradesh was Jyotiraditya Scindia. Talking on the eve of announcement of his name as the chief minister of the state, Kamal Nath said that he will ensure that the promises made by Congress in its manifesto are fulfilled. In his speech after Kamal Nath was elected as the CM, he thanked the party workers for working hard and attributed the victory to them.

    The Congress entourage will meet with the Governor and will give a formal proposition to form the next government in Madhya Pradesh. The reason coming out from the party sources as to why Kamal Nath has been chosen by Rahul Gandhi over Jyotiraditya Scindia is that Congress still requires two seats to achieve majority. To form a government, the independent candidates would have to be wooed despite both Samajwadi Party (SP) and Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) offering their support to Congress.

  • Congress crosses the majority mark in Madhya Pradesh

     Congress has recorded victory in the Madhya Pradesh elections by securing 114 seats. The party has made a claim to form the government in the state under the leadership of senior leader Kamal Nath. However the BJP has refuted Congress’ claims of forming the government  by saying that it will take the help of independent candidates and BSP in order to form the government. With both the major parties still short of the magical number, there is still uncertainty as to who will form the government however it is looking increasingly likely that the government will be formed by Congress because it only needs 2 seats to reach majority.

    The Congress state committee under the leadership of Kamal Nath is rumoured to be making a visit in the near future to the Governor’s office in order to ask permission to form the government.
