BACK IN SADDLE … Shivraj Singh Chouhan sworn in as Chief Minister of MP for 4th term, after Kamal Nath’s resignation

NEWS CM MP
BHOPAL: BJP veteran Shivraj Singh Chouhan was sworn in as Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh at a simple event here on Monday evening, following the exit of the Congress government led by Kamal Nath.

Shivraj Singh Chouhan, returning as chief minister for the fourth time – after a 15month gap when Kamal Nath ran government—is a prominent OBC face of the BJP and was at one time considered PM-material.

Kamal Nath resigned on Thursday, hours before  a Supreme Court deadline to prove his majority in a trust vote. The fall of his government came following an implosion in the state Congress, wherein senior leader Jyotiraditya Scindia and 22 MLAs quit the tricolour party and joined the BJP. The MLAs had flown to a safe location in Bengaluru and announced the resignations from there. They joined the BJP on Sunday.

Kamal Nath, former Union minister, took power as CM in December 2018, following the assembly polls that denied both the BJP and the Congress a majority. Nath, however, managed to form government with support from MLAs of the BSP and the SP as also some Independents. 

The new CM held an emergency meeting of top government officials on combating the Corona virus threat. He told the media later that this would be the first priority of his government. 

Chouhan had been elected leader of the BJP legislature party before he staked his claim before governor Lalji Tandon for formation of the government. Chouhan told the party legislators in his acceptance speech that Kamal Nath has done everything in the past 15 months to destroy the state, but did not elaborate.
