Amidst the political crisis in Jharkhand, the UPA delegation has reached the Raj Bhavan to meet Governor Ramesh Bais. Working President Bandhu Tirkey from Congress, MP Geeta Koda, Rajya Sabha MP Dheeraj Sahu, Vijay Hansda from JMM and Mahua Manjhi are meeting the Governor. The delegation had sought an appointment with the Governor today itself. The meeting time was given from Raj Bhavan at 4 pm.
Here, on the other hand, the meeting of the Soren cabinet is also going to start in a while. The government can also call a special session of the Legislative Assembly to put pressure on the Raj Bhavan. Through this, the government can itself pass a vote of confidence in the assembly like the Kejriwal government of Delhi. The announcement of the special session of the Vidhan Sabha can also be made after the cabinet meeting. There will be a press conference after the cabinet meeting.
On the other hand, all the ministers have been called from Raipur to Ranchi for the cabinet meeting. While JMM quota ministers were already in Ranchi, 4 Congress quota ministers who were shifted to Raipur have also been called to Ranchi on Wednesday evening by special aircraft.
After the cabinet, all the ministers under the leadership of CM can go to Raipur.
At the same time, in view of the political crisis in the state, the entire government of Jharkhand is likely to shift to Raipur on Friday. After the proposed cabinet meeting, under the leadership of Chief Minister Hemant Soren, everyone can reach Raipur’s Mayfair Golf Resort Raipur late in the evening.
Delhi-like situation in Jharkhand too, so the government can present a vote of confidence
Kejriwal government has presented its trust vote in Delhi also 3 days ago. There was also a situation similar to that of Jharkhand. Four MLAs had said in a press conference that BJP people are trying to buy them. The MLAs claimed that they are offering 20-20 crore rupees for this.
After the press conference of the MLAs, Arvind Kejriwal had called a meeting at his residence, in which 9 MLAs did not reach. After 9 MLAs did not reach, many kinds of speculations were being made. In such a situation, Kejriwal had given a message of solidarity within the AAP in the House by bringing a motion of confidence. Now this is the message of solidarity Hemant Soren wants to give in Jharkhand.
MLA at Raipur’s Mayfair Resort
UPA MLAs have been airlifted to Raipur amid political crisis in Jharkhand. Congress-JMM and RJD MLAs have been brought from Ranchi to Raipur by special IndiGo aircraft. The MLAs were taken in three buses to the Mayfair Resort in Nava Raipur. Tight security arrangements have been made outside the resort. Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel also met the MLAs at the resort.
Why was the Mayfair resort chosen for legislators?
Mayfair has so far been the most impenetrable for Congress legislators. Last year, when assembly elections were held in Assam and horse-trading of opposition MLAs started there, more than a dozen opposition MLAs were brought to this Mayfair resort in Raipur.
At the same time, when the Rajya Sabha elections were to be held in Haryana, there was also talk of horse-trading from the BJP side, on which the MLAs of Haryana were accommodated in Mayfair itself. Now when the crisis has come before the Jharkhand government, the MLAs have been brought here. Chhattisgarh CM Bhupesh Baghel is considered the master of Crisis Management.
The responsibility of breaking the Congress is on the shoulders of RPN Singh.
Before joining BJP, RPN Singh was in charge of Jharkhand Congress. He is considered to have played an important role in building up the Congress in the state and making it a partner in power. From ticket distribution to deciding the minister, RPN Singh himself had handled the whole task. It is believed that he is well aware of both the strengths and weaknesses of the Jharkhand Congress. That’s why now the BJP has given the responsibility of breaking the Congress to him.
Many MLAs are still direct contacts of RPN
If sources of Jharkhand Congress are to be believed, still many MLAs of Jharkhand Congress are in direct contact with RPN Singh. He is constantly meeting RPN Singh in Delhi. This is the reason that Avinash Pandey himself is leading from the front in the campaign to save the Congress. Although off-the-record he has also accepted that it is a complicated task.
Efforts are being made to break Congress and form a separate party
A big leader of Jharkhand Congress told Dainik Bhaskar that RPN Singh has given the responsibility of breaking the Congress to a senior leader of the party. Its entire planning was also done. There was a preparation to form a party by disbanding about 12 Congress MLAs, whose leader was to be elected by that senior member.
Sports spoiled after Kolkata cash scandal
RPN Singh’s planning was almost completely implemented, but just before that three Congress MLAs Irfan Ansari, Rajesh Kachhap and Naman Vixal were arrested in Kolkata with Kongadi cash. After this, the game of broken broke. The Congress in-charge asked him to reveal the whole game, but when he refused to do so, the party is now in the mode of taking action against him. The sword can also hang on his legislature.
Hemant fully alert this time
Senior journalist Ravi Prakash says that this time Hemant is fully alert. They know that they have got such a seat for the first time and they do not want to lose this opportunity in any way. This is the reason why they are seen chasing the BJP completely in terms of horse-trading and break-up.
Waiting for the letter of Raj Bhavan to the Election Commission
According to a senior official of the Election Commission, the ball is still in the court of Raj Bhavan. The Election Commission has already given its decision after thorough investigation into the matter. The order is to be issued to the Governor. Further action will be taken after the instructions of Raj Bhavan. Raj Bhavan will issue a gadget in this regard, which the State Election Commission will give to the Speaker. After that further action will be started.
Soren’s wife’s name at the forefront
If Soren’s chief minister’s chair goes, then the first name for this post is that of Soren’s wife Kalpana Soren. Joba Manjhi and Champai Soren are at number two and third. Both are very close and trusted to the Soren family. The Congress has also not raised any objection to these names so far.
What is a mining lease case?
On 10 February, a delegation of BJP under the leadership of former CM Raghuvar Das met the governor. BJP had demanded the governor to cancel the membership of CM Soren. BJP had alleged that CM Soren, while in office, had taken 88 decimal stone mining lease in Angada, Ranchi. BJP alleges that this is a violation of Section 9A of the Representation of the People Act (RP) 1951. The Governor sent this complaint of BJP to the Election Commission.
