Marriage of convenience between BJP & JMM in Jharkhand

In India, Politics on May 19, 2010 at 9:43 am

As per reports appearing in National media, BJP & JMM have arrived at a rotational  power sharing agreement in Jharkhand. BJPs chief ministrial candidate Arjun Munda will stake the claim and will head the Govt for first 28 months. Govt for next 28 months will be formed & run under JMM chief minister.

One must remember that Shibu Soren could run the current govt only for 4 months and his chair has been pulled out by coalition partner BJP because he voted against their cut motion in Lok Sabha. Previous experiences on the issue of extending support by main political parties as well as independents to each other in Jharkhand have not been successful and mostly ended in fiasco.We are not sure if this marriage of convenience will succeed or end up in an abrupt divorce.

It is an interesting fact that similar  power sharing agreements in  states like  UP and  J&K have flopped. Let us hope that politicians of Jharkhand have now  learnt their lessons well and will deliver by way of good conduct & governance.
