BJP`s withdrawal of support to
Shibu Soren government in Jharkhand Monday after a month-long
unsuccessful effort to head the coalition government there is
seen as a loss of face for new party chief Nitin Gadkari.
A day after announcing
withdrawal of support to Shibu Soren government in Jharkhand,
the BJP today refrained from implementing the decision and was
considering a JMM offer to support a new dispensation led by
The Congress Thursday said it was not in a hurry to initiate government formation in Jharkhand even as the BJP is set to meet the Governor to convey its decision to withdraw support to the Shibu Soren-led coalition.
Chief Minister Shibu Soren is fast running out of time to get elected to the state assembly, as two of the constituencies that would be safest for him to contest are held by close family members who don`t seem keen to quit.
Ahead of the Chief
Ministers meeting with Union Home minister P Chidambaram in
Kolkata on February 9, Jharkhand CM Shibu Soren on Wednesday renewed
his appeal to Maoists to shun violence and hold talks.
