BJP on Tuesday welcomed the decision of new Jharkhand Chief Minister Madhu Koda to review all the MoUs signed during the tenure of previous NDA coalition in which Koda himself was a member.
"It is a welcome decision. A government functions with a positive approach and good intention. As such the Arjun Munda regime had signed the MoUs to take the state on the development path," BJP state unit President Yadunath Pandey said in Ranchi on Tuesday.
Asked whether the decision of reviewing MoUs by the new government could also force the investors to review their business destinations, he said "I will be in a better position to reply to this query only after the review process was completed."
He, however, expressed confidence that the reviews would reflect the 'good work' done by the Munda government.
"I wish Koda all the best in giving Jharkhand a stable government as well as completing his full term," Pandey added.
After the oath-taking ceremony, Koda on Monday night announced to review all the 43 MoUs signed by the previous BJP-led NDA. Koda himself had been present at several such MoU-signing functions in his capacity as the Mines minister in the Arjun Munda cabinet. He also looked after the parliamentary affairs portfolio.
Addressing the press, Koda said his UPA government would review all the MoUs, keeping the interest of the state in mind.
Koda, however, assured that his UPA government would support those investors who are 'serious and committed' in setting up their plants in the state.
