"Appropriate action will be taken. Be assured that no one will violate your rights," the Governor told the MLAs. Following this, BJP leader Chouhan said that the Congress government lacks majority as it has just 92 MLAs while the BJP has 106.

"The chief minister is running away from the trust vote as he knows that the government lacks the majority. BJP has the majority and we have appealed the Governor to issue order for conducting the floor test at the earliest. He has assured to protect our constitutional rights," Chouhan told reporters.

"Congress has 92 MLAs while BJP's 106 MLAs are here and, therefore, it is clear that we have the majority. This unstable government cannot even be saved on the pretext of coronavirus," Shivraj added.

Earlier on Monday, the Madhya Pradesh Assembly, which assembled on Monday morning for the beginning of the Budget session was adjourned immediately after the Governor's address till 26 March, in backdrop of coronavirus pandemic.

In his address, Tandon appealed to Members: "All must follow the rules under the Constitution so that dignity of Madhya Pradesh remains protected."

After completing his address, Tandon left the Assembly shortly after the proceedings began. Following this the House was adjourned till 26 March. BJP leaders, meanwhile, raised slogans against the incumbent government in the Assembly.

In the Assembly Chouhan said that the current Congress government lacks majority while finance minister in the state government, Tarun Bhanot demanded that all missing Congress MLAs should be brought back to the Assembly.
