Meanwhile, Member of parliament from Satna Lok Sabha constituency in Madhya Pradesh, Ganesh Singh on Monday said Chief Minister Kamal Nath is running away from the floor test as he is aware that he lacks majority in the house.

The Lok Sabha MP said giving more time to Kamal Nath amounts to cheating to the people of Madhya Pradesh as “it is undemocratic for a minority government to continue in office.”

“Kamal Nath is running away from the floor test because he is aware he does not have a majority. He is using coronavirus as an excuse to buy time,” Singh said.

The Satna MP said the governor has directed in writing to the Speaker that there should be a floor test in the Assembly after his address.

“If the Speaker is not doing this, it is a disrespect to the Governor’s order. I feel the Speaker will take notice of this action.”

Singh also said that the MLAs are unhappy with Kamal Nath. “There is no proof that they are captive. Why cannot he find the missing MLAs?”
