Bhopal: Shivraj Singh Chouhan, who took oath as the Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister on Monday night, today moved a proposal for the floor test and passed it comfortably by voice vote. No member of the opposition Congress was present in the House.
Chouhan, 61, moved a one-line proposal to seek trust of the House soon after the special session of the state Assembly began. His proposal was endorsed by members through the voice vote.
Senior BJP MLA Jagdish Devda, one of the members of the Speaker's panel, was on the chair of Speaker. After Chouhan passed the floor test, the House was adjourned till March 27. The BJP had issued a whip to its MLAs to support the trust vote.
Chouhan was sworn in as Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh, days after the Congress government of Kamal Nath fell after losing its majority. The Congress lost its majority after 22 MLAs loyal to Jyotiraditya Scindia took a flight to Bengaluru and resigned. The MLAs later joined the BJP.
Kamal Nath, who came to power in December 2018, resigned before the deadline, knowing it would be impossible for him to make up the numbers needed to stay in power.
