Political crisis in Madhya Pradesh likely to be over after Supreme Court's direction to Kamal Nath govt to go for floor test and the whole voting test on Friday is held by a show of hands and the proceedings end by 5 pm. It also asked the entire day’s action in the assembly to be videographed.
The SC bench hearing the petition also said that if the 16 rebel MLAs wanted to attend the floor test, then they should be provided ample security by Karnataka and MP police personnel.
The apex court’s verdict is in response to a BJP petition seeking court’s intervention in for holding a trust vote in the assembly alleging the Kamal Nath government had lost the majority and was delaying a floor test purposefully. The Supreme Court said that the Friday session of the assembly shall be about a single agenda - to decide whether the government enjoys majority.
As per media reports Madhya Pradesh rebel MLAs will not be leaving for Bhopal on Friday and won't take part in the floor test. They'll be in Bengaluru as of now. Now the big question is will Kamal Nath face trust vote or resign to avoind floor test?
