Maharashtra Minority Affairs Minister and Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) spokesperson, Nawab Malik on Monday alleged that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is using “money and muscle” power to gain power in Madhya Pradesh. 

The Kamal Nath government in Madhya Pradesh is under turmoil after rebel MLAs from Congress resigned and long-time Congress loyalist Jyotiraditya Scindia joined the BJP. Of the 22 rebel MLAs, the resignation of only six legislators has been accepted. 

While speaking to the media, Nawab Malik said that the BJP was adopting to wrong ways in order to come to power in Madhya Pradesh but everything will be decided on the floor of the house. 

“BJP wants to come to power via the back door by offering money and through muscle power. They are adopting every wrong way to gain power in Madhya Pradesh. However, Chief Minister Kamal Nath has expressed confidence that he will have a majority. It will be decided on the floor of the house,” said Nawab Malik. 

The senior NCP leader also criticised Madhya Pradesh Governor Lalji Tondon saying that the assembly is always run by the rules and the way Governor was dictating was not fair. 

Earlier, MP Governor Lalji Tondon expressed his displeasure with the Kamal Nath government over its move to not list a trust motion in the agenda for the Assembly session. The Governor has now issued a fresh directive to Chief Minister Kamal Nath to face floor test today. 

The floor test was to be held yesterday - on the commencement of the budget session in Madhya Pradesh - but the speaker adjourned the house till March 26 due to the coronavirus outbreak. 

As this happened, the BJP rushed to Supreme Court seeking an urgent floor test to prove majority to form a stable government in Madhya Pradesh. However, the apex court adjourned the hearing of the plea and sought a response from the Kamal Nath government.
