Resort politics back again: Jharkhand MLAs likely to fly to Raipur
Raipur. UPA MLAs are expected to move to Chhattisgarh amid political crisis in Jharkhand. Most of the MLAs will reach Raipur late in the evening. For this, a special flight has been arranged. A team of MLAs led by Chief Minister Hemant Soren reached Ranchi airport a while back and then left for Raipur by a special flight.
Under the chairmanship of Chief Minister Hemant Soren, a meeting of the Legislature Party was held at the Chief Minister’s residence in Ranchi on Tuesday afternoon. The convoy of UPA MLAs has reached Birsa Munda airport in Ranchi by buses.It was said that the Chief Minister himself will not come to Chhattisgarh. A charter plane was hired to bring the MLAs to Raipur. This plane had to leave around 4.25. In Raipur they will be staying in Mayfair Resort.
In fact, on the request of Governor Ramesh Bais in a matter of office of profit, the Election Commission has recommended cancellation of assembly membership of Chief Minister Hemant Soren. Since then the political crisis has deepened in Jharkhand. The UPA alliance fears that the BJP is trying to break their MLAs through horse trading. Because of this, efforts are being made to keep all the MLAs together.
The Chief Minister has also called a meeting of the state cabinet on September 1. There are 81 MLAs in the Jharkhand Legislative Assembly. Of these, the UPA alliance has the support of 50 MLAs. The BJP alliance has a total of 30 MLAs. In such a situation, there is no scope for change of power while the legislators are united. Hemant Soren will now stay in the capital along with his 10 ministers. At the same time, 39 MLAs are going to stay for a few days in Congress-ruled Chhattisgarh.
