What will Congress do with JMM?

Jharkhand Mukti Morcha did not listen to Congress President Sonia Gandhi. Even after meeting with him, he did not leave the Rajya Sabha seat for the Congress. A day after returning to Ranchi after meeting Sonia Gandhi, he announced the name of his party leader Mahua Maji. Think, Hemant Soren’s government is completely based on the support of the Congress. JMM has 30 MLAs and the majority figure is 41, which has been achieved on the strength of 17 Congress MLAs. From above, Hemant, his entire family and many party leaders are caught in the investigation of central agencies. Despite this, he did not listen to the Congress. His thinking behind this is that what will Congress do?

Congress in-charge Avinash Pandey reached Ranchi soon after the announcement of the Rajya Sabha candidate but he too would not be able to do much. The chief minister’s confrontation with him is going on from day one. That’s when Hemant Soren did not allow Pandey to attend during his meeting with Sonia Gandhi. Only KC Venugopal was present in that meeting. There Hemant reminded of the last Rajya Sabha election and said that even when Shibu Soren was the candidate of JMM, Congress had fielded its candidate instead of supporting him.

Hemant Soren even dared to say this only because he knows that Congress cannot do anything. Congress will not take the risk of toppling his government. If the Congress is accused of giving an opportunity to form the government of the BJP by toppling the government of an opposition party or imposing President’s rule, then the politics of the opposition will be difficult for it. The second reason is that more than half of the Congress MLAs are in direct contact with Hemant and may even leave the Congress when the time comes. In fact, RPN Singh, the previous in-charge of the Congress, kept the Congress in the state as a slave of JMM’s dehri.
