On first anniversary of former CM Kamal Nath’s resignation

BHOPAL: Former chief minister Kamal Nath had to resign on March 20 last year, after a lot of political turmoil that the state had witnessed.

Shivraj Singh Chouhan took oath as chief minister on March 23. The Congress plans to organise a few events on this day by christening it a ‘Loktantra Samman Diwas (day to honour democracy).

Congress party state media vice president Bhupendra Gupta said Nath government was formed after 15 years in 2018. “The Nath government did remarkable work in the field of women empowerment, for farmers, youths and all sections of the society. But Nath government was toppled by non-democratic forces in the state,” Gupta said and added, “Kamal Nath offered to resign instead of compromising with democratic values”.
