Guwahati: With the Congress ministers taking back to back oaths on the same day, this is definitely one of the most remarkable days in Congress’ history. Firs,t it was in Rajasthan and then in Madhya Pradesh, Congress witnessed its candidates taking oath as the Chief Ministers on Monday. Congress candidate Kamal Nath has taken oath as Madhya Pradesh CM in Bhopal's Lal Parade ground.

The swearing-in ceremonies of the new Congress chief ministers are being attended by a host of political leaders, both from the Congress and other opposition parties. In the early part of the day, Jaipur remained packed with political leaders and then in Bhopal as well, a similar gathering of the political giants could be witnessed. However, three of the country’s top opposition leaders, namely, Mamata Banerjee of Trinamool Congress party, Akhilesh Yadav of Samajwadi Party and Mayawati of Bahujan Samaj Party will not be able to visit the ceremony.

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) is also invited by the Congress to give its presence in the events. However, Andhra Pradesh CM N Chandrababu Naidu is likely to visit all the three events in the country which are taking place on the same day.

Kamal Nath, being the top favourite of late Indira Gandhi, is certainly a well-deserving candidate. Addressing him, the late Indira Gandhi had once said, "This is my third son" which very well indicates how close he was to the Congress chief. Gandhi said the so while introducing Kamal Nath to the people of Chhindwara. It is this constituency from which Kamal Nath has been elected to the Parliament nine times.

Nath, the Kanpur-born politician, has been leading his party in Madhya Pradesh since quite long and it is under his endeavour that top party leaders like Digvijaya Singh and Jyotiraditya Scindia have got to realise that groupism might be a reason for his party's 15-year-long "vanvas" in Madhya Pradesh.

Other than the Kamal Nath's oath-taking, another swearing-in ceremony scheduled for the same day is Bhupesh Baghel in Chhattisgarh. Rahul Gandhi and other leading leaders of the Congress party have visited the Chhattisgarh event as well.
