Ranchi, Sep 8: As Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) staked claim to form the government in Jharkhand, Congress accused the saffron party of stitching together "an unholy and opportunistic alliance".

"The NDA has once again stitched up an unholy and opportunistic alliance. The governor should deeply study the situation before taking a decision," JPCC president Pradeep Kumar Balmachu said.

Responding to the same development, Left parties as well as RJD called for dissolution of the house to stop 'horse trading'.

"Had the house been dissolved earlier the BJP and allies would not have got any opportunity to team up which is not in the interest of the state," RJD"s state unit general secretary Manohar Yadav, CPI(M"s) state unit secretary JS Majumdar and his CPI counterpart BP Mehta said.

The BJP with backing from Jharkhand Mukhi Morcha (JMM) and the All Jharkhand Students Union (AJSU) staked calim to form the government in the state, which has been under president's rule for three months.

On Tuesday, Sep 7 , Arjun Munda met the Governor along with leaders of the JMM, AJSU, Janata Dal-United (JD-U) and two independents to hand over a letter claiming support of the 45 legislators in a house of 81.
