Bhopal:  Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath submitted his resignation to state governor Lalji Tandon at the Raj Bhawan here on Friday.

"Nath submitted his resignation to the governor," a Raj Bhawan official told PTI.

His move came a day after the Supreme Court directed that a floor test be conducted in Madhya Pradesh Assembly on Friday to prove that the Congress government led by him enjoys majority in the House following the resignation of 22 MLAs of his party.

These MLAs had resigned in support of former union minister Jyotiraditya Scindia, who quit the Congress to join the BJP earlier this month.
