A day after the Congress-JD(S) coalition government collapsed in Karnataka, BJP MLA Gopal Bhargava Wednesday said that the Congress government in Madhya Pradesh will fall within 24 hours if “we get orders from the top leadership”.
“If we get orders from our number 1 or number 2, your (Congress) government won’t last for 24 hours,” ANI quoted Bhargava, who is also Leader of Opposition in the state assembly, as saying.
Bhargava had earlier termed the Congress-led government in Madhya Pradesh as “worse than Karnataka government”.
“It was a coalition based not on any ideological compatibility or principles but on greed. I believe the situation in Madhya Pradesh is much worse than that of Karnataka,” said Bhargava.
The BJP leaders remark comes a day after the Congress-JDS coalition failed the floor test in Karnataka, bringing an end to prolonged political drama and uncertainty.
In Madhya Pradesh, the Congress has 121 seats out of a total 230 with support from Bahujan Samaj Party, Samajwadi Party, and four independent candidates. The halfway mark is 115.
