The Janata Dal-United Wednesday pulled out of the Shibu Soren-led government in Jharkhand, two days after the Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP) withdrew support.
Sudha Chaudhary, a minister in Soren’s government and the JD-U legislature party leader, faxed a letter to the Raj Bhawan informing Governor M.O.H. Farook of the party’s decision to withdraw support to the government led by the Jharkhand Mukti Morcha (JMM) chief. According to a Raj Bhawan spokesperson, Sudha Chaudhary also resigned from the post of minister.
The JD-U has two legislators in the Jharkhand assembly. The Soren government, which has been reduced to minority after BJP withdrew support Monday, has been asked by the governor to prove majority by May 31.
In the 81-member assembly, Soren was enjoying the support of 18 BJP legislators, two of JD-U and five All Jharkhand Students Union (AJSU) legislators. JMM has 18 legislators.
