Ranchi: Congress on Friday demanded that an ordinance be brought for the benefit of the people displaced after their houses were demolished during the anti-encroachment drive started earlier this month.

"Jharkhand government should bring in an ordinance that will save the displaced people who either lost their houses or face the threat of losing home following the anti-encroachment drive," JPCC President Pradeep Kumar Balmachu told newsmen here.

As senior BJP leaders Yashwant Sinha and Raghuvar Das staged sit-in here on April 17 and 18, the BJP-led government decided to move the High Court to seek time.

"But the High Court rejected it as the government approached it without any plans. The way the state government is functioning indicates (possibility of) another round of President’s rule in Jharkhand," claimed Balmachu.

The state has already experienced two stints of President’s rule during its ten-year political history.
