Nath-Congress Face of CM Post for MP Polls: Digvijay Singh

MADHYA PRADESH: According to a statement by Digvijaya Singh, former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath will be the party’s face in the ensuing assembly polls in the state.

We will fight the elections in Madhya Pradesh under the leadership of State Congress chief Kamal Nath. So, he will be the face,” Mr Singh told reporters on Sunday evening.

Singh’s statement comes days after a section of the senior party leaders of the MP Congress unit objected to posters projecting Kamal Nath as the chief ministerial face. A group of party workers, including Congress spokespersons on January 1, had put banners at several parts of the state, including in Bhopal, projecting Nath as ‘future chief minister’ of Madhya Pradesh. Nath in response said that he was not in the race for any post but his prime goal was to bring the Congress into power in Madhya Pradesh.

Nath came to power in 2018 after ousting BJP from its 15 years long reign. However, Shivraj Singh Chouhan returned to rule after two years as 22 sitting Congress MLAs along with party heavyweight Jyotiraditya Scindia resigned from Congress to join the BJP.
