Shivraj Singh Chouhan takes oath as Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister
Bhopal : Bharatiya Janata Party's senior leader Shivraj Singh Chouhan on Monday late evening took oath as the Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh, days after Kamal Nath resigned after losing majority mark.
This was the fourth time when Shivraj Singh Chouhan has taken oath as the Chief Minister of the state.
The Congress lost its majority mark in the state assembly after 22 MLAs resigned and joined hands with the BJP in the state.
The MLAs joined BJP yesterday, tweeted Mr Scindia, who quit his party of 18 years and joined the BJP last week.
The Congress tried several ways to get in contact with the rebel MLAs before the floor test deadline, but failed to make any contact.
Rejecting their appeal for more time, the Supreme Court said the uncertainty in Madhya Pradesh must end and ordered a test of strength last Thursday.
