New Delhi, Aug 18 (UNI) Breaking its silence for the first time ever since the ongoing crisis started in Jharkhand, the BJP today said it favoured fresh elections in the state to rid the people of the clutches of 'corrupt coalition'.

The crisis in which the coalition led by an Independent is reduced to a minority is a byproduct of the endless compromises made by the UPA Government headed by Dr Manmohan Singh, BJP spokesman Ravishankar Prasad told newspersons after a meeting of national Office Bearers of the BJP.

He said there can be a government in place if BJP accepts JMM leader Shibu Soren but we don't want such a thing to happen. ''Let there be an early election in the state and allow the people to give their mandate''.

Meanwhile a BJP delegation will be meeting the Election Commission tomorrow to discuss the problems faced by the party in terms of voters list, photo-ID cards in the states going to polls in the next six to eight months.

BJP Vice Presidents Yashwant Sinha, Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi, General Secretary Vijay Goel and Kalraj Mishra will be part of the party delegtion, party sources said.

The states that are scheduled to go to polls are Delhi, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh and Jammu and Kashmir.
