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.
He accused the BJP of trying to destabilize 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.
“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.
“I want character certificate from people, not the BJP,” he said. The BJP plotted against his government from the beginning, he claimed. “Who took the MLAs to Bengaluru?” he asked insinuating that the BJP arranged flights for the rebel MLAs.
