Ranchi: A senior Congress leader today
claimed that if the party headed the government in Jharkhand
it would be a stable one.

"If the Congress gets a chance to lead a government,
it will definitely last its full term because the party has
never compromised with ideals and pro-people progammes,"
senior Congress leader Krishnanand Tripathi said.

"The people have also seen how the Manmohan Singh
government did not compromise on the nuclear deal though the
Left parties ditched the Centre," he said.

"This is enough evidence that the party can steer
Jharkhand away from instability," he said.
BJP state unit spokesman Sanjay Seth, however said,

"The people have given a fractured mandate. The BJP lent
support not because of greed for power, but for development`s
sake. So long as a clear mandate is denied by the people there
is very little possibility of stability."
