SC upholds MP Governor’s decision asking Kamal Nath govt to prove majority

Supreme Court
The Supreme Court today upheld Madhya Pradesh Governor Lalji Tandon's decision asking the then Kamal Nath-led Congress Government to prove majority. The court said that the Governor has the power to call for a floor test.

The top court, which had on 19th of March asked Madhya Pradesh Assembly Speaker N P Prajapati to reconvene a Special Session the next day with a sole agenda of conducting the floor test, gave a detailed order today.

A bench of Justices D Y Chandrachud and Hemant Gupta, in its detailed verdict rejected the submission of the then Kamal Nath Government that Governor at best can call session of Assembly but cannot direct for holding floor test in the running house.

The top court relied on its landmark nine-judge S R Bommai verdict of 1994 and said that Governor was right in calling for holding of trust vote. It said that there is no impediment to a Governor asking a Chief Minister to hold a floor test, if he is of prima facie view that the government has lost majority.

Following the apex court order, senior Congress leader Kamal Nath had resigned on 20th of March 20.
