In response to circulating reports suggesting Kamal Nath's resignation as the Congress state president post the Assembly elections, his media advisor, Piyush Babele, refutes the claims as "baseless."

Meeting with Senior Leaders

Kamal Nath met with Congress national president Mallikarjun Kharge and MP Rahul Gandhi at Kharge's residence. AICC general secretary (Org) KC Venugopal was also present during the meeting, aiming to strategise and discuss the party's future course.

Post-Election Scenario

After the Assembly election results were declared, where the BJP secured a resounding victory, Kamal Nath, in a press conference, acknowledged the mandate, stating, "We accept the mandate of Madhya Pradesh voters in this democratic contest. We will fulfil the role of the opposition."

Congratulatory Tone

Despite the Congress facing defeat, Kamal Nath congratulated the BJP on their impressive win, expressing hope that they would responsibly handle the mandate given by the people.

BJP's Dominance

The BJP secured 163 out of 230 assembly seats, marking a significant victory after nearly two decades of political incumbency. Kamal Nath's tenure as Chief Minister was interrupted in 2020 when a political upheaval led to the fall of the Congress government.

Political Landscape

Madhya Pradesh has been a stronghold for the BJP, with the recent election results solidifying their dominance in the state. The political landscape saw a shift in 2020 when Jyotiraditya Scindia, along with 22 MLAs, switched allegiance to the BJP, resulting in the downfall of the Congress government.

In light of these developments, reports of Kamal Nath's resignation remain unverified and termed as unfounded by his media advisor.
