Jamshedpur, Nov 10: In a bid to persuade party workers protesting alliance with the AJSU Party, former Chief Minister Arjun Munda today said the BJP had entered into the alliance with the purpose to form a stable government and for the development of the state, AJSU has been anti-congress so is the case with the BJP.
Some of the activists and workers of the party are a bit baffled with the alliance but the issue will be sorted, said Munda talking to the media persons at Jamshedpur Airport on Monday evening.
It’s been 14 years since the formation of the state but due to the lack of majority government the state has not been on the road to development. Munda further informed that this is the reason BJP has entered into alliance with AJSU in order to form strong and stable government in the state.
Party has already declared the candidates in all its sets and this time the saffron party will outperform rivals and this time BJP will form the government in Jharkhand with full majority.
Senior BJP also accused opposition parties of attempting to confuse tribal voters over his caste status with a motive to drive political mileage ahead of the coming Assembly election in the state. “They (opposition) are free to put forward their version.
But the allegation is baseless,” Munda told newsmen when his reaction was sought over the claim by a section of tribal leaders about his caste status.“The issue is being wrecked up ahead of the poll with the sole motive of driving political mileage by confusing the tribals,” the BJP leader said.
Led by Congress’ Bagun Sumbrai, a delegation of tribals last week appeared before a committee formed by the East Singhbhum district administration to probe the allegation that Munda was not a tribal by his caste.
They also submitted documents in support of their claim before the committee headed by Deputy Development Commissioner Dr Lalmohan Mahato.Mahato, however, refused to comment on the issue as probe was still on.
