Ranchi: The Congress on Wednesday accused Jharkhand Chief Minister Arjun Munda of hijacking the decisions, which had been taken when the state was under the President's rule, and projecting them as its own with an aim to take credit on his coalition government's completion of 100 days.

"Be it panchayat polls or the 1064-crore Gobindpur- Sahebganj road project or electronic banking service -- all these decisions were taken during President's rule in June and July," claimed a Congress press release here.

"On July 16," the release claimed, "Jharkhand and the Asian Development Bank had inked a loan agreement for the road project, which can be accessed on the government's website."

But the chief minister sought to count those as the coalition's achievement during its 100 days of governance, it alleged.

Munda, who had on December 20 completed 100 days in office, yesterday gave a list of programmes and schemes that his BJP/JMM/Ajsu coalition had put in place during the short period.

The Panchayat elections had to be conducted following a court's directive, the release said, reacting to Munda's claim that the ongoing election for the rural bodies was one of the important achievements of the coalition.

"All formalities to implement the 6th Pay Commission for the teachers of university had been completed during the President's rule. Unfortunately, the Munda government has not implemented in its 100 days reign," the release said.
