Lalu for suspended animation of J'khand assembly

The BJP-led government in Jharkhand collapsed after coalition partner JMM withdrew support to it on Monday

PTI | January 9, 2013



The Arjun Munda government in Jharkhand has collapsed due to 'divorce' between the ruling coalition partners, RJD chief Lalu Prasad said on Wednesday and demanded that the assembly be put under suspended animation.

RJD has five MLAs in the 81-member Jharkhand assembly.

"The Arjun Munda government has collapsed following divorce between BJP and JMM," he told reporters in Patna.

The best possible scenario will be that the state assembly should be put under suspended animation for the time being so that the option of formation of a secular government could be explored, he said.

The BJP-led government in Jharkhand collapsed after coalition partner JMM withdrew support to it on Monday. Chief Minister Arjun Munda on Tuesday resigned and recommended dissolution of the assembly.
