Bhopal (Madhya Pradesh) [India], Mar 4 (ANI): Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath on Wednesday accused the BJP of attempting to destabilize the Congress government in the state with the help of mafias.
"BJP with the help of mafias has been unsuccessfully trying to destabilize the Congress government in Madhya Pradesh," Kamal Nath said.
"We have a full majority in the assembly which we have proved during the passage of budget and election of Speaker and Deputy Speaker," he added.
The Chief Minister's comments came in the wake of Congress accusing the BJP of holding captive MLAs, including Congress and independent lawmakers at a hotel in Gurugram.
Digvijaya Singh has accused BJP of resorting to horse-trading in order to bring down the Kamal Nath government.
Singh has alleged that BJP has escorted four Madhya Pradesh MLAs, including three from his party, to Bengaluru.
"Last night, two charter planes were booked by BJP to take MLAs to Bengaluru. One was a 9-seater plane while the other was 12-seater. In the 12-seater plane, four MLAs were taken to Bengaluru. Out of them, three Congress MLAs Bisahulal Singh, Raghuraj Kansana and Hardeep Dang and one Independent MLA Surendra Singh," Singh told reporters.
"Their phones were taken away. They were taken there (Bengaluru). Kansana was forcefully made to board the plane. Bisahulal Singh was also forcefully taken away against his will. We are not able to contact them," he said.
The Congress leader accused former Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, Narottam Mishra and some other BJP leaders for the political turmoil in the state.
Singh refuted that there was any rift within the party and said Chief Minister Kamal Nath, Jyotiraditya Scindia and all Madhya Pradesh Congress leaders were united. (ANI)
