Ranchi, Nov 11 (UNI) Hightening suspense over continuous Congress support to the Madhu Koda-led UPA government in Jharkhand, the party today said it would be announced after union minister and in-charge of state of party affairs Ajay Maken comes to the state on November 15.
The Congress, which was at loggerheads with the Koda government over some core issues, was not yet sure whether it should participate in the official celebration of the seventh state foundation to be held on November 15.
Jharkhand State Congress Committee president Pradeep Kumar Balmuchu, at a press conference here, ducked a straight question regarding the party's stand on the matter and only said Mr Maken would arrive in the state capital the same day and go to the chief minister's residence with legislators and MPs to hand over a memorandum.
Mr Balmuchu said the party this afternoon had a detailed discussion and worked on the issues to be included in the memorandum.
He said Mr Maken's proposed visit would not necessarily restrict criticism of the present UPA government but also would offer some advice for Mr Koda as well.
To media persons' repeated questions on whether the Congress would withdraw support, Mr Balmuchu said their decision will be announced after Mr Maken visited the state.
