Bhopal: Amid high political drama in Madhya Pradesh, Chief Minister Kamal Nath met Governor Lalji Tandon at the Raj Bhavan on Monday evening. Later, talking to reporters, Nath ruled out a floor test in the Assembly, claiming he has the numbers to run the government in the state.
“I met the governor and thanked him for his address on the opening day of the budget session. We are in a majority today, so no question of a floor test,” Nath said. "Those who claim that we don't have a majority can move a no-confidence motion against my government to get the floor test done,” the chief minister said, adding that his government is ready to do anything within the Constitution.
“The BJP has brought in a no-confidence motion. As on today, we have the numbers,” he said. However leader of opposition Gopal Bhargava refuted his claim and said that the BJP did not move a no-confidence motion on Monday.
Earlier in the day, the Governor had written a fresh letter to Kamal Nath, urging him to face a floor test on March 17. In the strongly-worded letter, the governor even warned that if the chief minister fails to get the floor test done on Tuesday, it would be deemed that the government does not have majority in the house.
