Kamal Nath meets Guv, says govt in majority; rules out floor test
Bhopal: Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath met Governor Lalji Tandon at Raj Bhavan on Monday night and later claimed his government enjoys majority, ruling out holding a floor test in the Assembly.
Nath also dared the Opposition BJP to table a no-confidence motion against his 15-month-old Congress government if they wanted to test its strength in the House.
"I met the Governor and thanked him for his address on the opening day of the Budget session. We are in a majority today so no question of a floor test.
"Those who claim that we don't have a majority should move a no-confidence motion against my government to get the floor test done," Nath told reporters after the meeting.
His meeting with the Governor at Raj Bhavan lasted for over half-an-hour.
The Chief Minister called on the Governor after the latter shot off a fresh letter on Monday, directing the Nath government to hold a floor test on Tuesday.
