"The state is reeling under severe drought and needs a government represented by the people. JMM MLAs feel that the party should be open in reaching out to like-minded parties interested in taking the lead in formation of a new government," JMM-LP leader Hemant Soren said.
Hemant said the people of Jharkhand should not be "imposed another elections lest the voters will lose faith on the elected members".
Hemant said, "elections were held in Oct/Nov last year and it is not good for the state and its people to face polls every six months. What is the guarantee that the next elections would throw up a majority?"
Hemant said, "we are open to any party and will support if it were interested in forming the government."
Shibu Soren had stepped down on May 30 after failing to muster majority following withdrawal of support by its then ally BJP on Apr 24 after a month-long drama of now-on and no-off ties between the two parties.
