Bihar Chief Minister, Nitish Kumar, on Friday, demanded imposition of President's rule in Jharkhand to prepare ground for a fresh assembly poll in the state. "Jharkhand should be brought under the President's rule and a fresh assembly polls be held to enable the people to give fresh mandate," he told reporters in Katihar.

He said President's rule would rid the state of the ongoing unethical tussel amongst some political parties to gain power in Jharkhand, Kumar said. Kumar also disapproved BJP's repeated bids for power in Jharkhand over the past one month and said that the saffron party should have stuck to its decision to withdraw support to the JMM-led coalition government headed by the Chief Minister, Shibu Soren, after the cut motion in Parliament.
