Ranchi: With the uncertainty over formation of a new government in Jharkhand due to differences between the BJP and JMM, JPCC president Pradeep Kumar Balmuchu on Friday claimed that the BJP was "blackmailing" its ally.

"The BJP has been blackmailing the JMM for seventeen days now ... they have failed to decide on ending the political uncertainty in Jharkhand," Balmachu said here.

He said he would go to Delhi tomorrow to apprise the party leadership about the political situation in the state and meet the governor on his return.

Meanwhile, five JMM MLAs -- Champai Soren, Bidyoot Barun Mahto, Ramdas Soren, Dipak Birua, who had yesterday demanded that Shibu Soren continue as chief minister for the first 28 months of a new government, were meeting in Jamshedpur.

Senior party MLA Simon Marandi was also joining the meeting, a Jamshedpur report said.
