Bhopal (Madhya Pradesh) [India], Mar 11 (ANI): Following the resignation of Jyotiraditya Scindia and 22 party MLAs a day earlier, Congress MLA Arjun Singh on Wednesday said that the Kamal Nath-led state government will survive and people will get to see it on March 16.
Arjun Singh was one of the MLAs who arrived at chief minister Kamal Nath's house on Wednesday morning for a meeting.
"The Congress government (in Madhya Pradesh) will stay. You will see on 16th, the number (of MLAs) will stay the same. Him (Jyotiraditya Scindia) leaving does not affect anything, days of Raja-Maharajas are long gone," Arjun Singh told the reporters here.
On Tuesday, Congress sent two of its leaders -- Sajjan Singh Verma and Govind Singh -- to Bengaluru in order to pacify some of the rebel MLAs who are lodged in a hotel there and who claimed to have resigned from the state Legislative Assembly.
Most of the rebel MLAs are perceived close to Scindia and are apparently unhappy at Scindia allegedly being sidelined in the party. The grand old party has been witnessing an internal turf war in Madhya Pradesh since it formed the government in the state in 2018. (ANI)
