JMM demands Jharkhand assembly polls

Jharkhand Mukti Morcha today demanded dissolution of the state assembly and pave way for elections along with Bihar, barely ten months after the state went to the polls.



Ranchi: Jharkhand Mukti Morcha today
demanded dissolution of the state assembly and pave way for
elections along with Bihar, barely ten months after the state
went to the polls.

"President`s rule is no substitute for popular
government. One cannot rule the state sitting from New Delhi,"
JMM-LP leader Hemant Soren told a news conference here.

"JMM is ready for polls. Let the elections be held
along with Bihar," Soren said.

On whether there was any chance to form a government
in the state, Soren said, "Arithmetically, no party is in a
position to form government without the help of JMM. Let the
national parties decide over it."

Jharkhand came under President`s rule on June 1 with
its assembly being put under suspended animation after JMM
President Shibu Soren resigned following BJP`s withdrawal of
support.

BJP, Jharkhand Vikas Morcha (JVM-P), and Left parties
have already met the governor separately and demanded for
mid-term poll.

Accusing Congress of not favouring mid-term poll,
JVM-P has recently announced to contest all the 81 seats as
and when the assembly elections would be held.
