Mamaji wins confidence as Congress MLAs absent themselves

Last night, BJP leader Shivraj Singh Chouhan was sworn in as the Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh by Governor. On Tuesday morning, the Mamaji (as Shivraj is fondly called as) won the confidence motion introduced in the Assembly.

It was a unanimous victory as not a single Congress MLA was present at the time of voting. "SP, BSP & independent MLAs voted in favour of the motion," ANI has reported.  

Mamaji is the CM for the fourth time. In the last 15 months, he had been the leader of the opposition.
