Ranchi: CPI(M) on Wednesday demanded immediate
dissolution of Jharkhand assembly to end the political
stalemate arising out of the `indecision` of BJP, which has
put on hold its decision on withdrawal of support to the
four-month-long Shibu Soren ministry.
"Now BJP is resorting to politics of bargaining, which is
unethical. As there is no political stability in the
state, only the people should decide the fate of the state and
they can have this chance only if the assembly is dissolved
and mid-term poll convened," CPI-M central committee member
J S Majumdar said.
He alleged that the week-long political uncertainty had
left the state administration paralysed and developmental
BJP national general secretary Arjun Munda, however,
rejected the allegations saying the administration was
"So long we don`t withdraw the support the
administration`s functioning is constitutional," he said.
Jharkhand plunged into political uncertainty after
Soren, an MP, voted for UPA in Lok Sabha on a cut motion on
April 27 and the subsequent announcement of withdrawal of
support by BJP the next day.
Soon after, the BJP parliamentary board put on hold
its decision as JMM and its allies are engaged in a dialogue
to salvage the situation.
