Jharkhand: Govt decides on Prez rule
The decision was taken after a discussion on the report of Jharkhand Governor Syed Ahmed.
The Governorís recommendation, made in his second report to the Centre on political situation in Jharkhand, was accepted by the Cabinet and a decision was taken to refer the matter to the President, sources said. Jharkhand, which was created in 2000, has been placed under Presidentís rule twice.
The present political instablity erupted on January 8 when BJPís ruling coalition partner JMM, in a letter to the Governor, formally withdrew its support to the 28-month-old government.
In the 82 member Assembly, BJP and JMM have 18 members each. The Munda government had the support of six members of All Jharkhand Studentsí Union, two of JD (U), two independents and one nominated member who has voting right in a trial of strength.
