Meanwhile, Congress Rajya Sabha MP Digvijaya Singh contended that BJP had formed the government in MP despite the people reposing faith in his party.

Kamal Nath quits ahead of floor test

Scindia’s sudden resignation from the Congress party on March 10 was followed by 22 Madhya Pradesh Congress MLAs putting in their papers and departing for Bengaluru. However, the Speaker adjourned the Assembly till March 26 in view of the novel coronavirus crisis without conducting the floor test. Ruling on a plea of BJP leaders seeking an immediate floor test, a two-judge SC bench comprising Justices DY Chandrachud and Hemant Gupta observed that the MP Assembly session should be reconvened on March 20 for the sole purpose of holding a floor test by show of hands. As the Congress party was short of a majority, Kamal Nath put in his papers.
