Unhappy to break tradition: Kamal Nath on Deputy Speaker election
Bhopal (Madhya Pradesh) , Jan 11 : Asserting that he is sad on breaking of the tradition in the appointment of Deputy Speaker of the State Assembly, Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath on Thursday blamed BJP for starting the tussle of the post.
Reportedly, amid noisy protests by opposition and after repeated House adjournments, two times MLA from Lanji assembly seat Heena Likhiram Kavre was elected Deputy Speaker through a voice vote.
Giving a veiled warning to the BJP, he further added, "We wanted that today's session of assembly must run smoothly. But they are afraid of being exposed. I want to tell BJP that a lot of exposes are going to happen, this is only a trailer."
During the last assembly elections, Madhya Pradesh saw a nail-biting fight, where the Congress managed to bag 114 seats out of a total of 230, while the BJP got 109 seats, BSP 2, Samajwadi Party 1 and Independents 4 in the recently concluded Assembly elections.
Soon after, Kamal Nath was sworn in as the Chief Minister, ousting three-time chief minister and BJP leader Shivraj Singh Chouhan.
