Congress rebel MLA’s join BJP in MP
Twenty-two Congress legislators, including six ministers, who earlier resigned their in the midst of a political crisis in Madhya Pradesh as Jyotiraditya Scindia switched to BJP, met BJP Presidnet J.P. Nadda on Saturday.
They met Nadda in the presence of Jyotiraditya Scindia and other than him, two key leaders of Madhya Pradesh — Narendra Tomar and Kailash Vijayvargiya were also present.
After the 22 MLAs left the Kamal Nath government, the veteran Congress leader resigned from his post just ahead of a vital floor test.
It began with Scindia’s dissatisfaction with the Congress. In his resignation letter to Congress’ interim President Sonia Gandhi, Scindia wrote: “While my aim and purpose remain the same as it has always been from the very beginning, to serve the people of my state and country, I believe I am unable to do this anymore within this party.”
He even accused his former party of living in denial.
