Jharkhand will Saturday get another BJP-JMM government, headed this time by BJP’s Arjun Munda -- who will be taking over as chief minister for the third time. With the central cabinet Thursday approving the lifting of President’s Rule, Munda has been formally invited by Governor M.O.H. Farook to form the government in the state. A letter was sent to Munda in the afternoon inviting him to take oath as chief minister, and prove his majority within one week of being sworn-in. The 42-year-old Munda, a Lok Sabha MP from Jamshedpur, will be sworn-in 11 a.m. Sep 11. JMM legislature party leader Hemant Soren and AJSU president Sudesh Mahto are expected to be sworn-in as deputy chief ministers with him. Earlier, Munda went to Raj Bhavan around 12.40 p.m. to meet the governor along with Soren and Mahto. Munda staked claim Tuesday to forming the government with the support of 45 legislators of his own BJP besides the JMM, the AJSU, the Janata Dal-United and two independents. Munda is now holding talks with party leaders and alliance partner about the shape of the government.
