Bhopal: After an ultimate showdown which resulted in Kamal Nath stepping down from the post of Chief Minister on Friday, MP Congress, in a cryptic tweet, said Nath would hoist the tri-colour on August 15 this year.
Hours after Nath tendered his resignation to Governor Lalji Tandon, MP Congress used its official twitter handle on Friday evening to state that Kamal Nath would hoist the national flag as Chief Minister on Independence Day and receive a salute.
“Keep this tweet in record,” urged the party.
This was followed up by a resilient claim from Nath in his farewell address at the Chief Minister's House on Friday.
Besides accusing the Bharatiya Janata Party of conniving with Jyotiraditya Scindia and his "greedy" MLAs for bringing down his government -- "mandated by public to last five years" -- Nath said today was always followed by tomorrow and day after tomorrow; hinting at some interesting things in store for the near future.
The state Congress is perhaps deriving confidence out of the fact that following the resignations of 22 Congress MLAs and the acceptance of resignation of BJP lawmaker Sharad Kol, 23 seats have fallen vacant in addition to the two already empty seats post the demise of one BJP and Congress MLA, each.
All these seats are due for by-polls and the Congress seems to be pinning its hopes on a favourable verdict. If the grand old party manages to keep all its seven allies intact, it could return to power with just 17 wins out of the 25 by-polls.
However, acquiring these could be an uphill task for the state Congress, after the country witnessed its massive internal fighting and anarchy, said political experts.
Meanwhile, after days of political acrimony, things have calmed down in Madhya Pradesh. Shivraj Singh Chouhan reached the assembly after Kamal Nath resigned. He met Speaker NP Prajapati and hugged him cordially.
Known for his humility in political circles, Chouhan later paid a surprise visit to Kamal Nath. The two leaders put their bitterness on hold and exchanged cordial greetings.

From many highlights of the US Presidential Inauguration event on Wednesday, Bernie Sanders sitting aloof with his mask and mitten has stood out, at least for the meme makers. The socialist Democrat, formerly a potential Presidential candidate himself, turned up to the Capitol Hill for the swearing-in ceremony of Joe Biden as the 46th President of the United States. Sanders wore a casual brown coat and mittens that became the talk of the town.
Beeper is a new platform that brings all your messaging apps together in one place. Created by the founder of Pebble smartwatches, Eric Migicovsky, Beeper is an effort to brings all your messaging apps into a single place. The app acts as a central hun for 15 major messaging apps or services and works on a monthly payment basis, where users need to pay $10 (Rs 730 by direct conversion) per month in order to keep all their messaging apps in one place. Perhaps the most interesting thing that Beeper may be able to do is run iMessage on Android. While announcing the new app, founder Eric Migicovsky said that Beeper allows iMessage to work even on Android, Windows, and Linux, but it involves using "some trickery."
