Congress has no role to play till Jharkhand Govt. does not fall: Shakeel Ahmed

New Delhi, January 07:

The Congress party on Monday termed the current political crisis in Jharkhand as an internal issue between the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Jharkhand Mukti Morcha (JMM) and said that the party has no role to play till the state government does not fall formally.

Reacting to the recent developments, Congress party in-charge for Jharkhand, Shakeel Ahmed said: We still consider it as an internal issue between BJP and JMM. If JMM officially withdraw support and the state government led by Chief Minister Arjun Munda formally resigns, thereafter we will think about next step."

"At present we are observing the development as a like a political party. As long as the government does not resign we have no role to play," added Ahmed.

Earlier today, JMM chief announced to withdraw support to the BJP-led Arjun Munda Government after the BJP refused to bow down to his demands.

JMM supremo, who wanted the BJP to hand over the power to his political outfit, has called for an immediate change in the leadership.

Soren had earlier threatened the BJP that his political outfit would walk out of the alliance if the chief minister's post is not handed over to the JMM as a part of the deal under which the two parties had agreed to share it for 28 months each.

The BJP had, however, today downplayed Soren's threat to withdraw support to the Arjun Munda -led coalition government in Jharkhand, saying it is the democratic process that matters and no compromise will be made with principles and promises.

Both the JMM and the BJP have 18 MLAs each in the 81-member Jharkhand Assembly. If the JMM withdraws its support than the Munda government will fall. (ANI)
