MP govt falls as Kamal Nath resigns
Bhopal: Ending days of political uncertainty in Madhya Pradesh, Chief Minister Kamal Nath on Friday resigned to bring down curtains on the 15-month-old Congress government in the state.
"In my 40 years of public life, I have always followed politics of probity and given priority to democratic values. Whatever has happened in the last two weeks is a new chapter in the devaluation of democratic values," he said in his resignation letter to Governor Lalji Tandon.
Wishing good luck to his successor, he said he would always extend his cooperation for the development of the state.
Nath had taken the oath of office on December 17, 2018. Before handing over his resignation, he told the reporters at the CM house that he tried to give a new identity to the state. He accused the BJP of trying to destabilise his government from day one. He alleged that the BJP did not like the campaign he launched against the mafia which proliferated during the 15-year rule of the BJP.
