Ranchi: AJSU party chief Sudesh Mahto on Wednesday demanded election in Jharkhand, which is currently under President`s rule, saying there is hardly any possibility of formation of government in the state.

"The Assembly should be dissolved to pave way for early elections in the state for a popular government," Mahto told reporters here.

"The time has already passed for any democratic process now," he said, referring to no formation coming forward to form a government though six weeks have been passed since imposition of Central rule on January 18.

The state came under President`s rule for the third time since its formation in November 2000 after JMM withdrew support to BJP-led government on January 8.
