Yashwant demands fresh elections in Jharkhand
Jamshedpur: Senior BJP leader Yashwant Sinha on Monday demanded fresh elections in Jharkhand, which is currently under President`s Rule, as no party has come forward to form a government.
Sinha questioned why the Governor did not recommend dissolution of the state Assembly, which was suspended.
He said that the BJP recently chalked out a course of action to mount pressure on the state administration to dissolve the state Assembly and recommend fresh elections.
He said there was no justification on stretching President`s Rule when no political party has staked claim to form a government.
He also blamed JMM leader and former deputy chief minister Hemant Soren for the fall of BJP-led coalition in 2009.
