Disgruntled Congress chief Jyotiraditya Scindia on Tuesday jumped the Congress ship. Next him, 22 MLAs have tendered their resignations. There have been rumours that Scindia may join the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). The 15-month-aged Kamal Nath authorities in Madhya Pradesh is tottering on the brink of a collapse.

Even so, CM Kamal Nath has stated the sport is not about still. “There is very little to fear about and will demonstrate the the greater part,” he stated.

In his resignation letter, dated March 9 and tendered to Congress President Sonia Gandhi on March ten, Scindia stated: “It is now time for me to shift on”. He was not able to “serve the men and women of the state while remaining in the bash”, he wrote. A shell-shocked Congress, in a mostly inconsequential shift, expelled him following this. Scindia’s exit break up the grand aged bash in the state, with various leaders expressing their dissent.

How the nummbers stack up: Congress has a wafer-slender the greater part in the Madhya Pradesh Assembly whose existing productive strength is 228. If the resignations of 22 or extra MLAs is accepted, the strength of the Assembly will fall to 206 or a lot less. The magic number for retaining the the greater part then will be 103. The Congress will be left with 92 seats and the BJP 109 seats.
