Shibu Shoren-led Jharkhand Mukti Morcha (JMM) is seeking to build new alliance with the Congress in a bid to form government in Jharkhand after it snapped ties with the BJP.
THERE WAS an agreement between JMM and BJP to have their respective chief ministers for 28 months each. But after the completion of the 28 months of the BJP rule in the state, when JMM demanded powers in its hands, the former refused to do so that made JMM to snap the ties.
Jharkhand chief minister Arjun Munda submitted his resignation to the governor and demanded dissolution of the assembly. JMM leaders like Hemant Soren, son of party chief Shibu Soren, Simon Marandi, Mathura Mahto and Hazi Hussain Ansari are already camping in New Delhi to have dialogues with the Congress leadership, as reported by NNIS.
However, as per the latest media reports, Congress leadership at center is opposed to the idea of forming any alliance with the “unpredictable” JMM. Notably it is the Congress leaders in the state that have shown much interest towards forming the government in the state in partnership with the JMM.
It is also learnt that the Congress High Command in Delhi has conveyed its reluctance to the state unit and is thinking to put the state under presidential rule.
