Madhya Pradesh Congress MLAs who were lodged in a resort in Jaipur, leave for Bhopal airport. Madhya Pradesh Governor Lalji Tandon has directed that a floor test be held in the assembly tomorrow.
The trust vote will take place soon after Tandon’s address to the Assembly at 11 am.
The state government, which was formed in late 2018, so far had the support of 121 MLAs in the 230-seat Assembly – 114 MLAs of the Congress, and the rest being from the Samajwadi Party and Bahujan Samaj Party and Independents. However, the resignations of as many as 22 Congress MLAs on Tuesday has made the government’s collapse imminent. The Bharatiya Janata Party has 107 MLAs, while two seats are vacant.
