Ranchi: Opposition RJD today demanded that a special session of Jharkhand assembly be convened and Chief Minister Shibu Soren prove his strength in the house in view of the withdrawal of support by BJP and then its putting the decision on hold.

"The governor should immediately convene a special session and ask the Soren government to show his strength in the house and clear the political uncertainty," RJD state unit President Girinath Singh told a news conference here.

"If the chief minister fails to show his strength the governor could call the second largest alliance to form the government ... We are with secular forces," he said.

Singh also demanded to know why BJP parliamentary board put on hold its decision to withdraw support to JMM that had stalled all development works triggering a 'political vaccuum' in the state.

"JMM leader Hemant Soren and Deputy Chief Minister Sudesh Mahto both had yesterday claimed Shibu Soren continues as the chief minister at the head of the JMM/BJP/AJSU coalition. But there is no word from the state leaders of BJP on the fate of the government," he added.
