New Delhi, Apr 28 (ANI): The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has said it will take a final call on ties with Jharkhand Chief Minister Shibu Soren's Jharkhand Mukti Morcha (JMM) at its Parliamentary board meeting to be held here at around 1 p.m. on Wednesday.

The BJP is reportedly upset with Soren for voting with the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) Government on the cut motion.

"BJP Parliamentary Board will take a final call on Soren at the meeting today," said senior BJP leader M Venkaiah Naidu.

"How can one ally claim he voted for the UPA by mistake," he added.

There are reports that the BJP may withdraw its support to Soren's Government in Jharkhand.

"Soren has betrayed us. What he has done is a betrayal of coalition dharma," said a BJP leader.

Soren had formed the government in Jharkhand with the help of the BJP. The BJP and its allies have 20 seats in Jharkhand, while Soren's JMM has 18 seats and others have also got 18 seats. (ANI)
