Jamshedpur: Senior JMM leader Champai Soren
today said there was no change in their stand with regard to
formation of government in Jharkhand though the party has
authorised JMM supremo and Jharkhand Chief Minister, Shibu
Soren to take decision on the issue.

"No, there is no change in our stand. We still want Guruji
(Sibu Soren) to continue as chief minister of Jharkhand as
there is no need to oust him midway", Champai Soren, MLA
and senior vice-president of the party said.

All the JMM MLAs were together and wanted Guruji to
remain as chief minister, Champai Soren told PTI when asked
whether JMM would accept BJP to take over the charge
particularly after the recent development.

BJP leadership had yesterday authorised party general
secretary and former Jharkhand chief minister, Arjun Munda, to
talk to coalition partners in regard with formation of
government in Jharkhand.
