Katihar (Bihar): Bihar Chief Minister, Nitish Kumar on Friday demanded imposition of President's rule in Jharkhand to prepare ground for a fresh assembly poll in the state.

"Jharkhand should be brought under the President's rule and a fresh assembly polls be held to enable the people to give fresh mandate," he told reporters here.

He said President's rule would rid the state of the ongoing unethical tussel by some political parties to gain power in Jharkhand, Kumar said.

Kumar also disapproved BJP's repeated bids for power in Jharkhand over the past one month and said that the saffron party should have stuck to its decision to withdraw support to the JMM-led coalition government headed by the Chief Minister, Shibu Soren after the cut motion in Parliament.

The chief minister, who has been riled by his adversaries for taking out 'Vishwas Yatra' to highlight and review the performance of his government, defended his decision saying visits to the districts had helped him ensure implementation of the policies and programmes launched by the NDA government in the past four and a half years.

In a bid to establish a personal rapport with the local people, Kumar visited the house of a girl Khushboo, who stood second in the merit list in the matriculation examination the results of which were announced a fews days ago. He presented her Rs 25,000 and some books.
