Jamshedpur: Union Minister for Food Processing Subodh Kant Sahay Wednesday attacked the BJP saying the party`s "lust for power" was the reason behind the prevailing political instability in Jharkhand.

"BJP joined hands with JMM to form government in Jharkhand only because of its lust for power," he said here on the sidelines of the final match of Jharkhand Premium League
cricket match.

"It is a curse that Jharkhand is lacking an honest leadership," he said.

Sahay said character of BJP was exposed when the state leadership changed the party Parliamentary Board decision in regard with Jharkhand government five times.

"Four power hungry state BJP leaders had forced the parliamentary board to reconsider their decision," he said.

Asked whether Congress will take any initiative to form a government after BJP-JMM alliance broke down, Sahay said Congress will not adopt any unfair means to form an alternative government.
It will definitely consider extending its support if any viable and honest alternative government was a possibility, he said.
