BHOPAL: After two weeks of high-voltage political highs and lows in the state, chief minister Kamal Nath on Friday afternoon submitted his resignation to Governor Lalji Tandon. Around 1:15 pm, chief minister’s convoy reached Raj Bhavan and handed his resignation which said, “In my 40 years of public life, I have always practiced politics of cleanliness and gave priority to democratic values.

The resignation letter further said, “I am giving my resignation from the post of chief minister of Madhya Pradesh. I also extend my good wishes to the new chief minister. He will always get my support for the development of Madhya Pradesh.”
Few minutes after the resignation, @OfficeOfKNath tweeted, “Today hopes and beliefs of Madhya Pradesh has been defeated, the gluttonous and avaricious have won. No one can win by crushing the self-respect of Madhya Pradesh. I will continue to work for Madhya Pradesh with all my determination.”

Before submitting his resignation, the chief minister addressed the media. He said, “People gave me five-years opportunity to take the state in the right path, to give Madhya Pradesh a new identity. My efforts were to ensure that the state is no longer compared to the smaller states of the country but the bigger ones. BJP got 15 years and I got 15 months of which two-and-half months went into Lok Sabha elections and model code of conduct.”
Kamal Nath argued that in the past 15 months, every citizen has been witness of the government’s public welfare policies and work. “In fear and panic, the BJP kept conspiring against our government. Within a month after our government was formed, every 15 days BJP used to say this is a short-term government. Said they will unfurl the national flag on Republic Day. They started their plotting from the first day but we still worked,” Kamal Nath said.
The chief minister alleged that 22 party MLAs were lured and kept in captivity in Karnataka. “People have seen this truth every day on television and in newspapers. How this enticing game was played spending crores of rupees. Entire state is witness to it,” he said.
Attacking BJP leader Jyotiraditya Scindia for the fall of his government, Kamal Nath said, “One Maharaja and his 22 accomplices together with BJP murdered democratic values. The truth will be exposed. People will never forgive these greedy persons who betrayed the state. I wanted that Congress should not go to the palace rather the palace should come to the Congress so that people are strengthened.”
