CM Shivraj Singh Chauhan has announced the resignation of his post by press briefing. Shivraj thanked the people of the state and respected the public opinion. He also said that he takes full responsibility for BJP’s ouster from power in the heartland state.
Leaving from the Raj Bhavan, Chouhan said he was now a “free man” and congratulated senior Congress leader Kamal Nath, though the grand old party was yet to formally announce him as the CM pick.
“I have tendered my resignation to the Governor. The responsibility for the defeat rests me and me alone. I am a free man. I congratulate Kamal Nath and wish him all the best,” Chouhan told reporters.
