Jharkhand Mukti Morcha, an ally of the Congress, will not accept any other leader than Sonia Gandhi to head the coalition Government.

"We will not accept any leader other than Sonia Gandhi", JMM Spokesman Muktinath Upadhyay told PTI here.

The Congress and its allies got votes in the name of Sonia Gandhi and "now there is no question of having another leader in place of Gandhi", he said.

Indian Union Muslim League, another ally of Congress, requested Gandhi to reconsider her reported decision not to become the Prime Minister.

Attacking BJP for opposing Sonia Gandhi as Prime Minister, IUML leader E Ahmed said "the present opposition to Gandhi assuming the Prime Minister's office is nothing but the deep rooted "jealousy" against her and hate against the Nehru-Gandhi family."
