Kamal Nath to take oath as Madhya Pradesh CM on December 14: Report
New Delhi : While Congress is still deciding between Sachin Pilot and Ashok Gehlot as upcoming Rajasthan Chief Minister, a report claims that Kamal Nath will take oath as Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister on December 14.
According to a report by CNN-News 18, Sources have confirmed that it will be Kamal Nath who will be taking the oath and not Jyotiraditya Scindia. It has also been learned that a dozen of other ministers will also take oath.
Sajjan Siingh Verma, Tulsi Silawat, KP Singh, Bala Bachchan, Jitu Patwari, Arif Akeel, Vijay Laxmi Sadho, Govind Rajput, Laxman Singh, Tarun Bhanot, Sachin Yadav, Kamleshwar Patel, Hina Kavre, NP Prajapati, Deepak Saxena, Sanjay Sharma are some of the MLAs who will take oath along with Nath on December 14, according to sources.
In the election results, the Congress has scored 114 seats; the party required 2 more seats to claim majority and form government in the state. It was a comfortable march past the majority mark with BSP chief Mayawati and Samajwadi Party leader Akhilesh Yadav lending support of their 2 and one MLAs, respectively. Four Independents who are Congress rebels are also likely to extend support, consolidating the party’s position further.
