Madhya Pradesh Governor Lalji Tandon on Sunday wrote to Chief Minister Kamal Nath saying that the voting during the trust vote in the assembly should be taken up only through raising of hands method.
Notably, in his letter to the CM ordering a trust vote on Saturday, the governor had directed that the division of votes during the floor test be conducted only through the electronic voting system and by no other way.
However, the governor issued new directives on Sunday after a delegation of BJP leaders urged him to direct the speaker to conduct the floor test by raising of hands. They claimed that the electronic voting system is not in place in the Assembly.
The budget session of the state assembly is scheduled to begin from Monday.
The governor directed the floor test in the wake of resignations of 22 MLAs of the Congress on March 10.
The BJP has claimed that the Kamal Nath-led government was reduced to a minority after the resignations.
Speaker NP Prajapati had accepted resignations of six MLAs–all serving as ministers in the Nath cabinet.
