2020 Political Drama in Madhya Pradesh
Referring to a political brawl in Madhya Pradesh in 2020, Gandhi said the saffron party bought 20- 25 corrupt leaders to make their government in the state.
In March 2020, Congress leader Kamal Nath announced his resignation a few hours ahead of the crucial floor test in the Assembly, ending his term of 15 months as the Chief Minister of the state.
The floor test became mandatory after 20 MLAs of the grand-old party resigned after a two-weeks of drama.
It will resume in the afternoon from the Ghaatiya bus stand.
The foot march participants will stay overnight in Jhalara village, party sources said.
The yatra is scheduled to cover a distance of 380 km in the politically crucial Malwa-Nimar region of western Madhya Pradesh within 12 days.
The Assembly elections in the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-ruled state are due next year.
From Madhya Pradesh, the yatra will enter Rajasthan on December 4, according to a program announced by Congress.
The march led by Gandhi entered Madhya Pradesh’s Burhanpur district from neighboring Maharashtra on November 23.
It has so far passed through the Burhanpur, Khandwa, Khargone, and Indore districts of MP.
