BJP to decide on govt formation in Jharkhand tomorrow
Amid efforts to break the stalemate over government formation in Jharkhand, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Sunday said that it would take an 'appropriate decision' on Monday on forming the ministry with JMM support.
"There is no confusion in our party. Our parliamentary board has already decided to withdraw support to JMM. Subsequently, JMM gave a proposal that they will support us to form a government. A final decision will be taken tomorrow in this regard," BJP leader Venkaiah Naidu told reporters in Chennai.
The BJP on Wednesday withdrew its support to the four month-old Shibu Soren government when the Chief Minister voted against the cut motion in Lok Sabha.
The BJP, however, put on hold its decision after Shibu's son Hemant, who is now playing a key role in talks between the two parties, wrote a letter to party chief Nitin Gadkari expressing support to a BJP-led ministry.
