Bhopal, March 17 : BJP leader and former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chaouhan said on Tuesday that rebel Congress MLAs lodged in Bengaluru have “openly” come out against the Kamal Nath government and that these MLAs have made it clear that they are not kept as captives in the Karnataka capital.
“The Congress MLAs’ statements have nailed the Congress lie. These legislators are clearly against the present Nath government,” Chaouhan said, adding “rather than diverting attention of the people, Kamal Nath should face the floor test in the Assembly.”
“By avoiding the floor test, the Congress government is only buying time,” said Chaouhan.
He said the BJP MLAs have presented themselves physically before the Governor. “On the basis of the numbers, the Congress government has lost its majority, which only the floor test in the Assembly can bear out,” said the BJP leader.
