Kamal Nath Playing Victim Card Announced Resignation From CM Post
Over 15 months after he took over as the chief minister of Madhya Pradesh, Kamal Nath resigned from the top post on Friday.
His move comes a day after the Supreme Court directed that a floor test be conducted in Madhya Pradesh Assembly to prove that the Congress government led by him enjoys majority in the House following the rebellion by 22 MLAs of his party.
Nath submitted his resignation to Governor Lalji Tandon at the Raj Bhawan this afternoon.
In his resignation letter, Nath said, “In my 40-year- long public life, I have always done politics of purity and valued democratic norms and given priority to it. But what transpired in the last two weeks is a new chapter of devaluation of democratic values.”
In the letter, he also congratulated new chief minister of the state and said he will also extend help in the development of the state.
Before submitting his resignation, Nath addressed a press conference, where he announced his resignation.
During the press conference, he also accused the BJP of killing the democratic values by conspiring against his government and blamed former Congress leader Jyotiraditya Scindia for the current political crisis in the state.
Blaming Scindia for the ongoing political crisis in the state, Nath said “BJP colluded with Maharaj (Scindia) for killing democracy and my government.”
After Speaker N P Prajapati accepted the resignation of 16 rebel Congress legislators on Thursday night, the Kamal Nath government was reduced to minority with 92-MLAs in the 230-members house. The resignations of six others had been accepted earlier.
Similarly, the strength of the house also reduced to 222, trimming down the majority mark to 104.
In this situation, the BJP has the majority mark with 107.

Punjab goes to polls next year.
Reports earlier quoting party’s chief spokesman Randeep Surjewala had it that Nath had resigned as General Secretary of the AICC.
Asked about the AAP’s charges against Nath, Sharma said AAP has “no credibility and has an opportunistic agenda” and was targeting the Congress leader with an eye on polls…

You cannot reopen which does not exist”, he said when asked about the AAP demand.
Claiming that Kamal Nath is the senior-most member of the Lok Sabha, who has also been party General Secretary and Union Minister, Sharma said that he decided to quit “out of his anguish” after being “condemned day in and day out despite being not guilty”.
