Madhya Pradesh Crisis: Kamal Nath writes to Guv, seeks removal of six ministers
Bhopal, Mar 10: Amid a political crisis in Madhya Pradesh, Chief Minister Kamal Nath on Tuesday wrote to state Governor Lalji Tandon seeking immediate removal of six ministers who belonged to the camp of expelled leader Jyotiraditya Scindia.
The copy of the letter, shared by a state Congress spokesman, mentioned the names of Imarati Devi, Tulsi Silawat, Govind Singh Rajput, Mahendra Singh Sisodiya, Pradyumn Singh Tomar and Prabhuram Chaudhari.
The number of MLAs who have resigned from the Congress in Madhya Pradesh climbed to 20 on Tuesday afternoon with another legislator quitting the ruling party, sources said.
While 19 MLAs, most of them believed to be loyal to expelled party leader Jyotiraditya Scindia, have sent their resignation letters via e-mail to Raj Bhavan, Bisahulal Singh submitted his resignation letter as an MLA to the Assembly speaker.
"We have received resignations of 19 MLAs through e-mails with attachments," a Raj Bhawan official told PTI.
Sources in Congress produced a copy of Bisahulal Singh's resignation letter which he submitted to the speaker.
Former chief minister and senior BJP leader later announced that Singh (65) has joined the BJP.
