Jharkhand crisis: MLAs make U-turn for Ranchi after ‘boat ride’. 10 updates


Amid the political turmoil in Jharkhand, the ruling coalition’s MLAs were seen taking rides, first in buses and then in boat, by the ruling coalition in the ongoing political drama in the state.

Jharkhand’s prime minister, Hemant Soren, had convened a meeting of the state’s ruling UPA coalition members, the third in two days.

This is what is happening in the political circles in the eastern state of India:

Soren’s JMM believes the BJP can make a serious effort to swindle MLAs from it and Congress in an effort to overthrow the government in a manner “similar to Maharashtra” and there is a need to to be placed in a “safe harbour”. “

“Resort politics” is the need of the hour to keep the ruling alliance’s numbers intact, JMM sources had said earlier in the day.

Shortly after the meeting of Jharkhand’s ruling UPA coalition members, amid speculation about Hemant Soren’s possible disqualification as MLA in the state assembly for allegedly violating polling standards by renewing itself a mining lease, the UPA leaders along with the CM saw having a quality time at Latratu Dam in Khunti district of the state.

At Latratu Dam, CM saw Hemant Soren with UPA MLAs and Ministers enjoying a boat ride near Latratu Dam. He was taken to a guest house near the Latratu Dam in Khunti District, where the Ranchi leaders had arrived.

MLAs from the Jharkhand Mukti Morcha, Congress and the RJD left the state capital in three buses in the afternoon and returned to Ranchi after spending a few hours in Latratu in Khunti district.

Congress legislator Banna Gupta then said: “The BJP MP wanted us to go to Chhattisgarh, so we thought we should at least visit the neighboring district of Khunti. As for the stability of the alliance, the ruling government is fully intact.”

Congress has blamed the BJP for polluting politics in the state. “The politics of Jharkhand is different… BJP is trying to pollute the politics here. If the EC sends a report in a sealed envelope, it will be leaked even before it is opened. The recent decisions of the alliance government will affect their (BJP ) base in tribal areas,” Jharkhand Congress working president Bandhu Tirkey told ANI.

The BJP has filed for Soren’s disqualification for violating Section 9(A) of the Representation of the People Act, 1951, which deals with disqualification from government contracts.

In the 81-member Jharkhand Assembly, the ruling alliance has 30 MLAs from the Jharkhand Mukti Morcha (JMM), 18 MLAs from Congress and one MLA from the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD).

In February this year, the BJP submitted a memorandum to the governor requesting the exclusion of Soren from the House under section 9(A) of the People’s Representation Act.
