Will focus on working in MP : Nath

Bhopal (Madhya Pradesh): Kamal Nath, the former Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh and current Congress MLA from Chhindwara, was sworn in on Monday morning upon his return from abroad.

Following Nath, newly elected Congress MLA Sohanlal Valmiki also took the oath.

Addressing media queries about his involvement in Delhi politics, Nath stated, “Why should I go to Delhi? I am not going anywhere. I will focus on working in Madhya Pradesh.”

Responding to questions about the absence of the opposition alliance in Congress’ flagship Nyay Yatra, Nath suggested that those responsible for the decision might have the answers, as he was not part of the opposition alliance meeting.

Nath, who secured victory in the Chhindwara assembly seat, was out of the country during the initial oath ceremony for MLAs. Consequently, a special session was convened on Monday, where the MLAs who missed the ceremony took their oaths, administered by Speaker and former Union Minister Narendra Singh Tomar.

Nath defeated his BJP opponent Banti Sahu by a significant margin of over 36,000 votes in Chhindwara.

In another electoral win for Congress, Valmiki emerged victorious in the Parasia seat in Chhindwara district, defeating BJP candidate Jyoti Dehariya by a slim margin of just over 2,000 votes.

After the Congress party was reduced to 66 seats in the 230-member house, the high command replaced Nath with former Rau MLA Jitu Patwari as the Madhya Pradesh Congress president.
