Dumka (Jharkhand): The Congress on Tuesday
said big business houses willing to invest in Jharkhand should
have tribals as their shareholders.

"Unless tribals are taken as share-holders, the
corporate houses should not be allowed to make profits," AICC
leader and party’s Jharkhand Affairs incharge K Keshav Rao
said here.

leader and party’s Jharkhand Affairs incharge K Keshav Rao
said here.

Addressing a district-level convention, Rao said most
political leaders in Jharkhand had forgotten that eight per
cent were tribals (of Santhal Parganas) and the poor.

"The Congress has solutions to all problems, and if it
comes to power in Jharkhand, it will address to every
problem," claimed Rao.

Speaking on the occasion, PCC president Pradeep Kumar
Balmachu alleged that the Arjun Munda government had received
the patronage of industrialists in forming his government.

"Arjun Munda should make public the names of
industrialists who helped him form his government ... even
BJP?s state unit president Raghuvar Das had said he was called
up by an industrialist," Balmachu alleged.
