New Delhi, Apr 28: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has withdrawn its support to Shibu Soren government in Jharkhand after the chief minister voted for United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government in the cut motion on Tuesday, Apr 27.
After taking serious note of Soren's 'betrayal' in the Apr 27 cut motion which led to the party's defeat, BJP on Wednesday, Apr 28 decided to drop its support to the Soren government.
When it emerged that Soren had voted in favour of the UPA government and against the his coalition party, there were speculations if the Jharkhand Chief Minister had secretly struck a deal with Congress.
BJP sources alleged that Soren may have struck a deal with Congress in a bid to make his son, Hemant, the Deputy Chief Minister of Jharkhand.
While the Jharkhand Mukti Morcha (JMM) claimed that the vote was a 'mistake', BJP seems to have taken the decision to teach Soren a lesson in power and politics.
