Scindia’s resignation from the Congress party has led to the downfall of 15 months the Kamal Nath government in Madhya Pradesh. Along with him, 22 MLA resigns from the Congress Party. Among 22 loyalists of Scindia, 14 were sworn as the minister in Madhya Pradesh by the Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan.
