Amid the political instability in the Congress-led Madhya Pradesh govt, Rajasthan Deputy Chief Minister Sachin Pilot on Tuesday said that he is hopeful that the political crisis in the state will end soon. This statement from Pilot comes after around 20 Cabinet ministers in Madhya Pradesh tendered their resignation to Chief Minister Kamal Nath, who has accepted the resignation and is likely to reconstitute the cabinet.

Taking to Twitter, the DyCM added that the state needs a stable government in order to fulfill the promises made to the people.

Meanwhile, it is also reported that the Congress party will hold a legislative party meeting on March 10.  The ministers have urged him to "reconstitute the cabinet" to "foil the BJP's attempts to topple the Congress-led government in the state".

Chief Minister Kamal Nath had flown to Delhi on Monday to meet Congress interim President Sonia Gandhi to discuss the political upheaval that his government is going through.

Sources also revealed that Kamal Nath would be meeting party member and former Congress Lok Sabha MP Jyotiraditya Scindia with whom he often doesn't see eye-to-eye, and who has been slightly aloof from the entire matter thus far despite some of the wantaway MLAs allegedly belonging to his camp.
