Jamshedpur, Jan 9 (UNI) The Congress may consider pulling out its support to the Madhu Koda-led UPA government in Jharkhand if it fails to accelerate the pace of work for the development of the state.
This was observed today by party state vice-president Gopal Sahu who came here leading a six-member state-level Congress team from Ranchi to take part in a demonstration of the East Singhbhum district committee of the party before the Deputy Commissioner's office.
The party was demanding to provide water, electricity, construction of roads and other infrastructural facilites to the people of the district and accelerate the development work under National Rojgar Gurantee Scheme. They also submitted a memorandum to Deputy Commissioner N M Kulkarni.
Mr Sahu said the Congress had already issued a dead line till January 15 to the Koda government and asked him to work as per the 19-point agenda, submitted by the party.
He said the Congress would also conduct a survey in the 24 districts of the state and if not satisfied with the performance of the government, they would inform the high command to withdraw support from the state government.
The Congress and the RJD are providing outside support to the UPA government in the state.
