Shibu Soren takes potshots at Lalu Prasad Yadav
Zee Media Bureau
Dumka: Dumka: Taking potshots at former Bihar Chief Minister Lalu Prasad Yadav, JMM supremo Shibu Soren on Sunday asked ministers to take a lesson from the conviction of the RJD supremo.
"Ministers should take it as a lesson (from the verdict). No one should indulge in scam, or else will have to go to jail," Soren said when his reaction was sought on Yadav`s conviction at a press conference here.
The RJD supremo is now in jail after being sentenced to five years in prison by a special CBI court on October 3 in the fodder case.
Soren further said that the party was ready for the Lok Sabha elections and a final dialogue over seat adjustment with ruling ally Congress in Jharkhand would take place.
"We will sit together and discuss on it," Soren said when asked on seat-sharing with Congress for the next general elections.
"The Jharkhand Mukti Morcha is ready for the Lok Sabha elections," he said.
Asked what role he would play, the former Chief Minister said it depended on a given situation.
Soren`s son, Hemant, is heading the UPA alliance in the state.
In the run up to the formation of the government in July the alliance leaders had said there had been an agreement between JMM and Congress that the latter would contest 10 out of the 14 Lok Sabha seats in the next general elections.
Soren said his son Hemant Soren-led UPA government in
Jharkhand was functioning commendably.
"The government is functioning well, and I am happy with it," he said.
The JMM-led UPA government took oath on July 13 in alliance with Congress, RJD, smaller parties and Independent MLAs.
The senior Soren`s praise comes in the backdrop of BJP`s state unit president Ravindra Rai accusing the government of failing to take off.
