Ranchi, Nov 11 (UNI) Jharkhand State Congress Committee president Pradep Kumar Balmuchu today remarked that JMM president Sibu Soren was a captain without a ship and said that Guruji's reaction to it was caused by confusion through media reports.
''What I meant was that Mr Soren is the chairman of state UPA steering committee, a committee which is yet to be fomed,'' Mr Balmuchu said at a news conference here.
The Madhu Koda-led UPA government came into power more than a year back and an announcement was made regarding the steering committee to be headed by Mr Soren.
However, till date the committee was yet to be formed, Mr Balmuchu said, adding that his statement regarding captain sans ship was in that particular context only.
''I had no intention of hurting Guruji's sentiment,'' the state congress chief however maintained.
