Congress described the resignation by all 21 BJP MLAs from the Jharkhand assembly on Wednesday as a ‘political stunt aimed at cheap publicity´ ahead of the impending assembly elections in Jharkhand.

“Worried over good governance under President’s rule, the BJP has taken recourse to such a cheap political stunt. The people will give them a fitting response,” Jharkhand PCC President Pradeep Kumar Balmachu said here.

Alleging that BJP was unable to tolera te the anti-corruption measures in the state, he said the saffron party had found itself in a piquant situation following the ‘good work´ being carried out by Governor K Sankaranarayanan.

“When Syed Sibtey Razi was the governor BJP had staged demonstrations demanding his removal. Now that the new governor has taken umpteen welfare measures in the state, which has satisfied the people BJP should answer whether it is satisfied with the present governor’s performance or not,” Balmachu added.
