New Delhi: Senior Congress leader Jyotiraditya Scindia resigned from the Congress party Tuesday, amid allegations of marginalisation by the party leadership.

“This is a path that has been drawing itself out over the last year,” Scindia wrote in a letter addressed to interim Congress president Sonia Gandhi.

The 15-month old Kamal Nath government in Madhya Pradesh faces a crisis as 21 other MLAs followed suit. This is likely to be followed by the Bharatiya Janata Party staking claim to form the government in the state.

Following is a list of the 21 Madhya Pradesh Congress MLAs, including ministers, belonging to the Jyotiraditya Scindia camp who have resigned so far.

Ministers: Tulsi Silawat, Govind Singh Rajput, Dr Prabhuram Choudhry, Imarti Devi, Pradyumna Singh Tomar and Mahendra Singh Sisodia.

Other MLAs who have resigned: Hardeep Singh Dang, Rajyavardhan Singh, Brajendra Singh Yadav, Jaspal Jajji, Suresh Dhakad, Jaswant Jatav, Santram Sironia, Munnalal Goyal, Ranveer Singh Jatav, OPS Bhadoria, Kamlesh Jatav, Giriraj Dandotiya, Raghuraj Kansana, Aidalsingh Kansana, Biasahulal Singh.

State Congress spokesperson Pankaj Chaturvedi, a close confidant of Scindia, resigned from the party’s primary membership soon after Scindia announced that he was quitting the party.
