Congress wants to govern through President's rule: Marandi

india Updated: Aug 24, 2010 02:06 IST

Demanding mid-term polls, Jharkhand Vikas Morcha (Prajatantric-JVP-P) on Monday accused its pre-poll ally Congress of desiring to govern the state by prolonging the President's rule.

"Congress is gearing up to rule Jharkhand indirectly by prolonging the President's rule, which is not good for democracy. The assembly should be immediately dissolved to pave way for elections," JVM-P president Babulal Marandi said at a public meeting here in the headquarters town of Palamau district.

Reiterating that his party would go it alone in the next assembly elections, as and when conducted, the former chief minister opined that the house should be dissolved without any delay as no party had initiated to form government even after nearly three months passed after the imposition of President's rule.
