NDA to form govt in Jharkhand, says BJP
BJP's Vananchal Committee spokesman Umashankar Kedia on Sunday claimed that the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) would form the interim government in the proposed Jharkhand state.
"As BJP and its allies together have 52 assembly seats in the Jharkhand area out of a total of 81, there is no question of any other combination coming to power in the new state," Kedia said in a statement in Ranchi.
Out of the 52 assembly seats belonging to the NDA in the Jharkhand region, BJP has 32, Samata five, JD(U) three and the Jharkhand Mukti Morcha (JMM) 12.
Asked who would be the chief minister of the new state, Kedia said that it would be decided by the leaders of the NDA and its legislators after the state became a reality.
He also appealed to the NDA constituents to abstain from making controversial statements regarding the first chief minister of Jharkhand.
