Ranchi: The Congress today described as
`opportunistic` the BJP staking claim to form a government
with allies in Jharkhand, while Left parties called for
dissolution of the house to stop `horse trading`.

"The NDA has once again stitched up an unholy and
opportunistic alliance. The governor should deeply study the
situation before taking a decision," JPCC president Pradeep
Kumar Balmachu said.

Had the house been dissolved earlier the BJP and
allies would not have got any opportunity to team up which is
not in the interest of the state," RJD’s state unit general
secretary Manohar Yadav, CPI(M’s) state unit secretary J S
Majumdar and his CPI counterpart B P Mehta said.

The RJD and Left parties demanded immediate dismissal
of the assembly, now in suspended animation.
