Madhya Pradesh Governor Lalji Tandon has directed Assembly Speaker Narmada Prasad Prajapati to hold a floor test on Monday after 22 MLAs of the Kamal Nath-led government have resigned.

"The Madhya Pradesh Assembly's session will commence at 16 March, 2020 at 11 am, and after my address to the assembly, the first work to be conducted will be voting on trust vote," the Governor said in his order.

"The division on the trust vote will take place by pressing the button, no other mode of voting will be acceptable," he added.

The Governor said that the floor test cannot be delayed or deferred.

The Madhya Pradesh Speaker on Saturday accepted the resignations of six rebel ministers.

After the acceptance of the rebel ministers' resignations, the strength of the 230-member MP Assembly has come down to 222, two seats were already vacant owing to the death of two MLAs.
