Jharkhand has been put under President’s rule once more as no political party was able to come up with the magic numbers to formulate the Govt in the state.
This is the second time in just about 6 months, when President’s rule has been imposed in Jharkhand. Chief Minister Shibu Soren resigned on Sunday after which it became very clear that Congress or the BJP won’t be coming forward to stake a claim for Govt formation.
Governor M.O.H. Farooq sent his report on Monday to the Central Govt. He consulted with the three major parties, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Congress and Jharkhand Vikas Morcha-Prajantrik (JVM-P), but since none of them were interested, he had the only option to recommend a President’s rule.
In almost a decade since the Jharkhand State was created, it has rarely seen any kind of political stability. The voters of the state are to be blamed as much as the politicians are. Despite seeing the shameless way in which the Politicians make fun of their votes for personal gains after every election, Jharkhand continues to vote on the basis of caste. It’s high time that they ;learn and vote for a stable Govt in the next elections.
It seems pretty certain now that the state may go back to polls with Bihar in Nov 2010. Bihar 2010 Assembly Polls are due in Nov this year.
