Ranchi: JMM chief Shibu Soren on Friday asserted
that the Arjun Munda government was stable, hours after the
Congress trashed media reports that it had approached the
ruling ally, JMM, for government formation.
"The government is safe," Soren told reporters in reply to
a question. He did not take any further question.
Earlier in the day, Leader of the Opposition R P Singh
belonging to Congress, raised the issue in the state Assembly
informing the House that no talks were held with the JMM.
Deputy Chief Minister Hemant Soren also dismissed the
newspaper reports that he had been offered the CM`s post by
the Congress in a new alignment.
"These are all rumours," said Hemant, who was also upset
with a local news channel flashing that he was leaving for New Delhi along with Union Tourism Minister Subodh Kant Sahai in the afternoon flight. Hemant was in the Assembly premises till 5:45 pm.
