Bhopal: Congress leader and senior MLA Bisahu Lal Sahu on Tuesday joined the Bharatiya Janata Party amid the ongoing political crisis in Madhya Pradesh.
“I have resigned from the Congress as well as from the membership of State Assembly. I have joined BJP. Most of the Congress MLAs will resign from the Congress in coming days as they are fed up with the functioning of Kamal Nath govt,” said Sahu.
Earlier today, in a major setback for Congress, its influential leader Jyotiraditya Scindia quit from Congress after meeting Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah.
The Congress government is on a risk to fall as Scindia supporting MLAs have started giving resignations.
Scindia, having been overlooked for the Chief Minister post, claimed the Pradesh Congress Committee post, but that too was denied to him as he faced stiff resistant from the Digvijaya-Kamal Nath camp, sources said.
