Led by former Chief Minister Kamal Nath, the state government was toppled after twenty-two Congress MLAs, mostly of them Jyotiraditya Scindias associates, had resigned. It reduced the Nath government to a minority, paving the way for the BJP to come to power. Scindia joined the BJP in March and is now a Rajya Sabha member.

BJP National General Secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya on Wednesday said at a public event that Prime Minister Narendra Modi played an “important role" in the fall of the Congress government in Madhya Pradesh.

“Don’t tell anyone. I haven’t told anyone this till now… am making it public for the first time from this stage. If anyone played an important role in pulling down the Kamal Nath government, it was Narendra Modi and not Dharmendra Pradhan," said Vijayvargiya, according to a report by NDTV. Union Minister Pradhan and MP Home Minister Narottam Mishra were present at the event in Indore.
