Bhopal. Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, who took oath on Monday night, won the confidence motion in the State Assembly Tuesday morning amid a boycott of the vote by the Opposition Congress. The Congress MLAs boycotted the state Assembly proceedings which have now been adjourned till March 27.


The vote comes after Kamal Nath, on March 20, resigned from the post of the Chief Minister to Governor Lalji Tandon following the resignation of 22 Congress MLAs. Madhya Pradesh Assembly Speaker N.P Prajapati meanwhile had resigned late Monday night, hours after Chouhan took oath as chief minister of the State. In his resignation letter submitted to Deputy Speaker Hina Kavre, Prajapati said he is resigning as speaker of the state Assembly on moral grounds.  
Shivraj Singh Chouhan was back as Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister on Monday night for a record fourth term. The legislator from Budhni took oath of office at a simple function in Raj Bhawan, where he was sworn-in by Governor Lalji Tandon at 9 pm. Chouhan has decided to prove his majority for which a four-day special session of the state assembly is going to begin from Tuesday. Three sittings will be held during the four-day session, an official from the Assembly secretariat stated late Monday night.
