The leaders said the JVM would convene a meeting here on May 14 to be attended by Babulal Marandi, Stephen Marandi, BJP leader Shailendra Mahto, Praveen Singh, Devendra Champia, Ram Dayal Munda and a host of other prominent personalities and intellectuals, to chalk out its future course of action.
The leaders said the situation of Jharkhand had become worse than what it was under the then Bihar and stressed the need for change of guard. The JVM was also contemplating to form of a third front in Jharkhand as both the ruling NDA and the Opposition failed to deliver goods, the leaders said.
