Kharsawan: With the Hatia
Assembly seat lying vacant, Jharkhand Chief Minister Arjun
Munda opn Sunday said he would consider an offer of BJP MLA from
Kharsawan to contest from there and enter the House.

"I will seriously think over your offer, keeping the
sentiments of the people of your constituency," Munda told
Kharsawan MLA Mangal Singh Soy when the latter made the offer
while Munda was addressing a meeting here in
Sareikela-Kharsawan district.

Munda, who had represented Kharsawan three times
earlier before getting elected from Jamshedpur in the 2009 Lok
Sabha elections, has to enter the House within the stipulated
six months period from his swearing-in, which took place on
September 11 at the head of a BJP-led coalition.

Incidentally, Hatia Assembly seat is also lying vacant
after the death of a Congress MLA about four months ago.
