In another twist to the Jharkhand imbroglio, the Jharkhand Mukti Morcha on Sunday asked all its MLAs to meet at Chief Minister Shibu Soren's residence on Monday for a meeting of the legislature party.
“We have asked all the party MLAs to attend the meeting at the party president's residence to discuss the present political situation,” JMM legislature party leader Hemant Soren told PTI here.
He refused to comment whether the JMM would at last announce which way it would go.
The development comes a day after the JMM said it was in touch with the Congress and all options were open including changing its alliance with BJP.
“It is for the BJP to look for options. I am in touch with both and the Congress and the BJP. All options are open. My government will stay,” Shibu Soren, who has to step down as Chief Minister by June 30 if he is not elected to the Assembly by then, told reporters on Saturday.
Striking a defiant note, the JMM chief had said he would complete his tenure, backtracking on his May 18 statement that he will resign after the party reached an agreement with the BJP for sharing power on a rotational basis with the BJP to head the government first.
