Giridih, Nov 7 (UNI) Despite Congress' open criticism of the Madhu Koda-led UPA government in Jharkhand, the Chief Minister today said that in coalition politics, such type of allegations and counter-allegations were nothing new.
Mr Koda today visited former Chief Minister Babulal Marandi to condole the death of his younger son Anup, who was among the 19 killed by CPI (Maoist) ultras on October 17 at Chilkhari.
Mr Koda's attention was brought to the ongoing Congress criticism of his government to which he asserted that there was no threat to government in the state.
''In coalition politics, such rhetorics are common,'' he said.
The Chief Minister said the state government was formulating new policy to counter - insurgency and the Centre had given full support in this regard.
Jharkhand Mukti Morcha president Sibu Soren, who accompanied Mr Koda, said the political parties should not try to take advantage of such isues and should address the matter rising above self -interest.
