The Madhya Pradesh (MP) ‘political drama’ is about to come to an end with ‘Shivraj Singh’s‘ swearing-in. The drama that started with Jyotiraditya Scindia’s leaving of Congress and joining BJP saw climax when the Supreme Court ordered ‘floor test’.
Little over an hour before the ‘floor test’ Kamalnath resigned as Chief Minister (CM) as he lacked number to pass ‘floor test’. This happened as the resignation of 22 rebel MLAs of congress (loyal to Scindia) was accepted. The 3 times CM BJP’s Shivraj was all but obvious to be sworn in as the CM for 4th time. This would be the first that a same person would be sworn in as CM OF MP for the 4th time. Earlier Arjun Singh (Congress) and Shyamcharan Shukla (Congress) have been sworn in as CM 3 times each.
As per reports, he is likely to take oath today in presence of governor at ‘Raj Bhavan’. The oath ceremony would likely be held at 7:00 PM today. The swearing-in would be a low key affair and would be done after BJP’s Legislative Party meeting later in the day.
