Congress stunned the BJP on Wednesday by getting two BJP legislators to vote with the ruling party in Madhya Pradesh Assembly on the Criminal Law (Madhya Pradesh Amendment) Bill, 2019. If the BJP cracks its whip, the duo will not represent the party any longer but they will continue to be MLAs and vote according to their will. The BJP had not issued any whip but it had boycotted the proceedings so the duo was expected not to vote for or against. Though not a formal trust vote, the result allowed the Congress to take potshots at the BJP whose leaders often boast that the Kamal Nath government will not last long. The Assembly elections threw a fractured mandate giving the Congress 114 and the BJP 109.
