“Last night, two charter planes were booked by the BJP to take MLAs to Bengaluru. One was a 9-seater plane while the other was 12-seater. In the 12-seater plane, four MLAs were taken to Bengaluru. Out of them, three Congress MLAs Bisahulal Singh, Raghuraj Kansana and Hardeep Dang and one Independent MLA Surendra Singh,” Singh alleged.
Digvijaya Singh further accused former Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, Narottam Mishra and some other BJP leaders of creating the political turmoil in the state.

Refuting any rift within the party, Digvijaya Singh said Chief Minister Kamal Nath, Jyotiraditya Scindia, and all Madhya Pradesh Congress leaders ae united.
The Congress also accused the BJP of holding captive MLAs, including Congress and independent lawmakers at a hotel in Gurugram. Digvijaya further accused the BJP of resorting to horse-trading in order to bring down the Kamal Nath government.
