Bhopal, Dec 12: Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan on Wednesday resigned from his post after the BJP failed to attain a majority in the state.
“Ab mein mukt hoon, I am free. I have tendered my resignation to the honourable Governor. The responsibility of defeat is totally mine. I have congratulated Kamal Nath ji”, Singh said after tendering his resignation.
“Na haar mein, na jeet mein, kinchit nahin bhaybhit main, kartavya path par jo bhi mile, yeh bhi sahi woh bhi sahi”, he said.
In the 230-seat Madhya Pradesh Assembly elections, the Congress emerged as the largest party with 114 seats.
With support from the Bahujan Smaja Party and Samajwadi Party, the Congress will stake a claim to form a government in the state.
