Munda, MLAs visit Ajmer Sharif, seek blessings
Ajmer, Mar 28 (UNI) Jharkhand Chief Minister Arjun Munda and his entourage of MLAs today paid obeisance at Ajmer Sharif, asking for speedy solution to the current political impasse rocking the state.
After last years's political upheaval in Jharkhand, the NDA government and its legislators who came to power in the state due to the blessings of the Khwaja Moiunddin Chisti, returned to Ajmer seeking the Khwaja's blessings again.
Last year, a number of legislators from Jharkhand had come for ziyarat at the Dargah and had prayed for an NDA government in the state. A few days later, the NDA government was formed in Jharkhand under the leadership of Munda.
The NDA MLAs believe it was only due to the Khawaja's blessings that they were able to form the government and this time they are again seeking his intervention to end the current political crisis threatening the Munda government.
The Jharkhand government is in crisis as thirteen of its MLAs have been found to be holding office-of-profit and Opposition have demanded their immediate disqualification from the assembly.
Mr Munda, who is leading a team of 36 MLAs, including 13 ministers in the coalition government, however, said the Ajmer visit is a ''thanksgiving trip'' and nobody should see any political connotations in the trip.
He emphasised there was political crisis in his state.
Mr Munda and his entourage reached Ajmer at around noon BJP's senior leader Omkar Singh Lakahwat and chairman of Urban Improvement Trust Dharmesah Jain also accompanied the MLAs.
The Chief Minister laid a chadar and flowers on the mazar and offered prayers.
Mr Munda and his team also visited Pushkar where they offered prayers at the sarovar and also visited the Brahma Mandir.
