New Delhi, May 1: Leaders of Jharkhand Mukti Morcha (JMM) are making their way to the national capital to meet the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)  top brass over the issue of state government.

Led by Hemant Soren, son of beleaguered Jharkhand chief minister Shibu soren, the JMM leaders' visit to New Delhi is being seen as the party's attempt to re-establish ties with the BJP.

What is interesting is the fact that leaders such as JMM leader Haji Hussain Ansari, Champai Soren and Teklal Mahato, who want Soren to continue as the Chief Minister, are accompanying Hemant.

Hemant has taken up the campaign to convince the BJP that JMM was open to the option of forming an alternative government. Soren's younger son, Basant is also accompanying Hemant.

The move to take Basant along is being considered as JMM's effort to convince BJP that the whole Soren family had a favourable stand on the alternative government option.

While BJP top brass is busy holding meetings and consultation on the next course of action in Jharkhand, the party's state unit is reportedly divided on the issue of continuing ties with JMM.
