Patna: Newly elected Bihar BJP president C P Thakur on Wednesday justified his party's decision to withdraw support to the JMM-led government in Jharkhand, saying the JMM chief had acted in a "dubious manner".

"The BJP Parliamentary Board took the right decision after taking a serious view of the dubious manner in which Shibu Soren sided with the ruling government during the cut motion in the Lok Sabha yesterday," Thakur told reporters.

Thakur said deputy chief minister of Jharkhand Raghubar Das along with other party leaders would be submitting their resignation letters to the Governor soon.

BJP president Gadkari was focused on Bihar, and he would visit the state prior to the national executive committee meeting scheduled for June 12 and 13 in Patna, he said.

His first task would be to provide equal status to all sections of society and bring workers of BJP and JD-U on a common platform, the newly elected BJP president said.

Taking a cue from Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar's 'Vishwash Yatra' from Valmikinagar in West Champaran district, the BJP would also launch a 'Sampark Yatra' soon, he added.

The Sampark Yatra is aimed to convey voters about the achievements of the NDA government during the past four and a half years of its rule and to seek for a second term in the state, Thakur said.

Asked about the Bataidari Bill, he said it was a dead issue as the chief minister had himself clarified that the recommendations of D Bandhopadyaya Commission on land reforms would not be implemented in the state.

He alleged that a few disgruntled elements opposed to the chief minister were organising the 'Kisan Mahapanchayat' to derive petty political gains.

The party would organise a massive rally on June 13 here that would be addressed by party president Nitin Gadkari, former Deputy Prime Minister L K Advani, Sushma Swaraj, Arun Jaitely and other top leaders, he added.
