Kamal Nath: In the midst of rumours that he may resign from his position in the wake of the party’s loss in the assembly elections, Madhya Pradesh Congress chief Kamal Nath is scheduled to attend the INDIA alliance meeting in Delhi on Wednesday. He will also meet with party president Mallikarjun Kharge separately, according to sources.
BJP’s Dominance in Madhya Pradesh
The BJP secured 163 seats, or a two-thirds majority, out of the 230 seats in Madhya Pradesh, more than doubling the Congress’s total of 66 seats, according to the results of the assembly election, which were made public on Sunday. After Rahul Gandhi was soundly defeated in the assembly elections, Kamal Nath spoke with him on the phone.
Post-Election Analysis Meeting
He has scheduled a meeting with every contender for tomorrow to discuss the reasons behind the party’s loss in a state they were certain to win. According to sources, Kamal Nath will meet separately with party president Mallikarjun Kharge on Wednesday and will then determine whether or not to remain as the chief of the Madhya Pradesh Congress. The sources further stated that the Congress leadership is displeased with his comments regarding seat sharing, which he made against several leaders of the INDIA bloc, including Akhilesh Yadav, the head of the Samajwadi Party, and Nitish Kumar, the leader of JD(U).
INDIA Bloc Leaders Frustrated with Seat Allocation
The leaders of the opposition INDIA bloc, which was formed to oppose the BJP in the 2024 Lok Sabha elections, were irritated by Kamal Nath’s refusal to give the JD(U) more than one seat in Madhya Pradesh, despite the Samajwadi Party’s request for only four to six seats. According to the sources, Kamal Nath’s decision to meet Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan on Monday rather than party leaders and workers has also apparently infuriated the Congress leadership.
