While stating this, Jharkhand unit president of BJP Dineshanand Goswami told a press conference, "You can enquire from other coalition partners JD(U) and AJSU Party in this regard."

He said there was a co-ordination committee to raise grievances or issues for discussion.

Goswami's remark came in the wake of a suggestion made by Sibu Soren, JMM supremo and the chairman of the Steering Committee in Jharkhand, about a 28:28 month rotation of power with the BJP in the state.

Soren had said there would be change of leadership in the state after Munda government completes 28 months in office.
