Bhopal: The former Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh, Shivraj Singh Chouhan, told that the fall of Congress-JD(S) government in Karnataka will have a fall out in other states including Madhya Pradesh.
He said that the internal conflict of the Congress party itself will be its undoing in other states ruled by grand old party.
While speaking to ANI, he said, “There is an internal conflict in Congress, and support of BSP-SP, if something happens to that then we can’t do anything.”
Chouhan said that if the Congress led government in Madhya Pradesh meets the same fate as the Kumaraswamy government in Karnataka then BJP must not be held responsible.
The BJP leader said, “We will not cause the fall of government here (Madhya Pradesh). Congress leaders themselves have been responsible for the fall of their governments.”
Madhya Pradesh has a 230-member strong Assembly. Congress which won 114 seats is in power with the support of BSP , SP, and independents which takes the Congress led alliance to 121 seats.
On the other hand BJP has 108 members in the Assembly.
Soon after Shivaraj Singh Chouhan’s statement the Congress leaders got jittery and came out to attack the former BJP Chief Minister. They blamed the BJP of horse trading which led to the defeat of the Congress-JD(S) government in Karnataka.
The Congress leaders refused to acknowledge the internal bickering and squabbles which had ultimately led to the downfall of the Karnataka government led by Kumaraswamy.
