Allegedly captive ex-Cong MLAs leave Bengaluru resort; Shivraj visits Nath at residence
The 16 rebel MLAs of Congress, who were allegedly confined in Ramada resort in Bengaluru since the first week of March, finally left the resort on Saturday morning – a day after Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath submitted his resignation to Governor Lalji Tondon. The MLAs were snapped boarding their cars with baggages, leaving for the airport.
While the political dust is now started to settle, the BJP has started preparing to take over the reins of the state in the coming weeks. The political analysts are of the view that taking into consideration the present political scenario; the three-term former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister and the BJP’s national vice-president Shivraj Singh Chauhan could be the party’s first choice.
Earlier, during the day with reference to Nath’s allegations that the BJP tried to destabilise the Congress in the state from the very beginning, Chauhan told the media that the BJP never played games to save power. The Kamal Nath-led Congress government has fallen from its burden and internal strife.
Meanwhile, Chauhan paid a courtesy visit to Nath at his residence on Friday night around 9.30 pm and the two spent some time together.
