Despite having a clear chance to come to power in Jharkhand, the Congress is treading cautiously. The party appears reluctant to exploit the crisis triggered after Chief Minister Shibu Soren, who runs the state government with the BJP­ support, voted in favour of the Congress during cut motions in the Lok Sabha.

The BJP declared it would no longer support the Soren government, but is yet to pull out formally.

"Let the BJP decide its course," said Subodh Kant Sahai, Congress MP from Ranchi.

"The ever-changing stand of the BJP has baffled the country..."

Congress's Jharkhand in-charge, K Keshava Rao, said the party was keen to ensure "transparent governance".
