MP CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan resigns after Congress emerges as the largest party in state in the Assembly Elections

ANI
Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan has resigned after Congress emerged as the largest party in the state winning 114 seats in the Assembly Elections. Congress is short of two seats to form the government in the state. 

However, the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) and the Samajwadi Party (SP) have extended their support to the party. BSP has won 2 seats and SP 1 seat, taking the total for Congress to 117, crossing the majority mark of 116.

Congress' closest rival BJP secured 109 seats. AIR correspondent reports Congress sought an appointment with the Governor last night to stake claim to form the government. While sources in the Governor House informed that an appointment will be given only after the situation is made clear by the Election Commission.
