BJP has been drooling over Jharkhand CM`s post: Cong
New Delhi: After the BJP withdrew support to the Shibu Soren Government in Jharkhand, Congress Monday said it was not surprised as that party was "drooling for a long period" to get the Chief Minister`s post.
"We are not surprised by this action of the BJP. It has taken the action in utter desperation. The BJP had been drooling for a long period to get the Chief Minister`s post," party spokesman Shakeel Ahmed said.
He said when the BJP failed to get the coveted post, it was left with no alternative. Ahmed downplayed Soren`s comments that his party was in touch with the Congress, saying he was not aware of it.
Frustrated over JMM backtracking on its power-sharing agreement in the state, the BJP today withdrew support to the Shibu Soren government.
