Writing the letter to PM Modi, Nath alleged that there was an ‘undemocratic pandemic’ prevailing in the country in which the BJP was luring away MLAs to topple elected governments in states ruled by opposition parties.

“The federal structure of India is being hit and governments are being toppled in an unprincipled manner in all those states which have governments of political parties other than that ruling at the centre,” he said in the letter.
Nation’s democratic system is shaken & it’s suspected that its centre lies in central govt.

He urged PM Modi to come forward to save the declining credibility of Indian democracy by not giving any place in the government and the party to such opportunist leaders who are facing charges of trading democratic values.
“The nation’s democratic system is shaken and it’s suspected that its centre lies in the Central government. Hope suspicions will prove to be baseless, you’ll step forward to protect reputation of democracy and not allow such opportunist leaders in your government/party,” Kamal Nath wrote.
The development comes as the Congress government headed by Nath lost power in Madhya Pradesh in March this year when 22 party MLAs joined the BJP. At present, the Congress government in Rajasthan too is facing a political crisis.
Earlier in the day, Narayan Patel, Congress MLA from Mandhata, resigned from MP Assembly and later in the afternoon joined the BJP. Earlier this month Sumitra Devi Kasdekar and Pradyuman Singh Lodhi had quit the party and joined the BJP.
