BJP accountable for political crisis in Jharkhand: Cong

Last Updated: Monday, May 10, 2010 - 21:50

Ranchi: The Congress on Monday said the BJP
is accountable for destabilising the political situation in
Jharkhand and accused the saffron party of betraying the
people of the state.

"We don`t have the numbers and are not in a situation
to interfere...but it is the BJP which has brought the state
to a grinding halt for the last 15 days and is accountable and
responsible for the state of affairs," Congress spokesman
Radhakrishna Kishore said.

Reacting to the division of opinion in the JMM over
the possibility of its President Shibu Soren relinquishing the
post of chief minister, Kishore said, "It is betrayal on the
part of BJP which assured stability during formation of
government after the November/December assembly elections."

Meanwhile, JMM MLA Simon Marandi told newsmen here
that at least six party MLAs would meet tonight on the Soren
issue.

Terming the BJP as `power grabber`, the RJD`s LP
leader Annapurna Devi said the BJP`s `inconsistency` has left
Jharkhand in a chaotic situation.

"Only greed for power, the BJP has been prolonging the
political crisis, affecting development of the state, which
has much bigger issues like poverty, drinking water,
electricity and migration to address," Devi said in her
reaction on the continued political uncertainty in the state.
