Ranchi, May 3: The Opposition Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) on Monday, May 3, said that a special session of Jharkhand Assembly should be convened and asked Chief Minister Shibu Soren to prove his strength in the House in the wake of the rift between the Jharkhand Mukti Morcha (JMM) and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
"The governor should immediately convene a special session and ask the Soren government to show his strength in the house and clear the political uncertainty," RJD State unit president Girinath Singh told a news conference here.
"If the chief minister fails to show his strength the governor could call the second largest alliance to form the government ... We are with secular forces," he said.
Singh demanded an explanation from the BJP for putting on hold its decision to withdraw support to Jharkahnd Mukti Morcha (JMM) government.
"JMM leader Hemant Soren and Deputy Chief Minister Sudesh Mahto both had yesterday claimed Shibu Soren continues as the chief minister at the head of the JMM/BJP/AJSU coalition. But there is no word from the state leaders of BJP on the fate of the government," he added.
