Bhopal, Nov 26 (UNI) Madhya Pradesh opposition Congress today made it clear that it would not allow assembly proceedings to progress until Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan tender his resignation following registering of an FIR against him in the much-debated dumpers' purchase case.

''We are firm on our demand for Mr Chouhan's resignation or else assembly proceedings would not be allowed to progress,'' Leader of Opposition in state Assembly Jamuna Devi said at press room in the Vidhan Sabha here.

Eight other senior party leaders, including Congress General Secretary Digvijay Singh, were present.

On whether she did not wish to hear the ruling BJP Government's reply in this regard, she said the party would not accept anything except Mr Chouhan's resignation.

On bringing of 'No Confidence Motion' during the assembly's winter session and its appropriateness when it would not allow assembly proceedings to progress, Ms Devi contended that it was their responsibility towards people.

Mr Singh alleged Mr Chouhan had no right to continue as Chief Minister, as it would affect an impartial probe against him.

Senior Congress legislator said party legislators today reached the main gate of the Vidhan Sabha in dumper to protest corruption in dumpers' purchase case.

He said a situation of constitutional crisis had developed in view of the registering of a FIR against the CM. The Congress would demand his resignation as soon as proceedings begin tomorrow.
