Political uncertainty has gripped Congress-ruled Madhya Pradesh following the resignation of Jyotiraditya Scindia from the party.
Scindia's decision to leave Congress was followed by resignations from 22 party MLAs loyal to him.
Scindia, who was seen leaving from Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Lok Kalyan Marg residence along with Home Minister Amit Shah on Tuesday, is likely to join the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
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. (ANI)
