New Delhi, May 7 (ANI): The Jharkhand Mukti Morcha (JMM) on Friday proposed to its coalition partner, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), to share the Chief Minister's post for equal terms in the state.

Jharkhand Chief Minister Shibu Soren's son Hemant Soren met BJP President Nitin Gadkari to solve the ongoing crisis in the state, and suggested a BJP Chief Minister for the first term followed by a JMM Chief Minister for the remaining term.

The BJP has reportedly sought letters of support from all 18 JMM MLAs, so that a stable BJP-led government could take over in Jharkhand.

The JMM-led government in Jharkhand was reduced to a minority on April 28 after the BJP withdrew its support, as it was reportedly upset withy Soren for voting with the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) Government on the cut motion.

After the BJP's pullout, the ruling coalition has been reduced to 28 Members in a House of 81. (ANI)
