Mumbai: Madhya Pradesh CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan on Wednesday questioned the Congress party’s decision of deputing senior party leader and former MP CM Kamal Nath as an All India Congress Committee (AICC) observer in Maharashtra amid the political crisis.
Addressing a public meeting in Ujjain, the Chief Minister said, “Congress is counting its last moments.”
He asked the Congress leadership that when Kamal Nath could not save his own government in Madhya Pradesh, how would he save the Maharashtra government.
“Kamal Nath (MP Congress chief and former MP CM) has gone to Maharashtra… how will someone who couldn’t save his own govt in Madhya Pradesh, save the Maharashtra government?… Congress is counting its last moments,” Chouhan said.
The Congress on Tuesday appointed its senior leader and former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath as AICC observer in the state.
The decision came soon after reports that some Shiv Sena MLAs along with party leader Eknath Shinde moved to Surat and became a threat to the ruling Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) government.
Meanwhile, Eknath Shinde, with 33 party MLAs and seven independent MLAs, who were staying at Le Meridien hotel in Surat arrived at Assam’s Guwahati on Wednesday morning.
