Expressing concern over the political crisis in Jharkhand, CPM's senior party leader Sitarm Yechury on Saturday said that the developments in the state have dealt a severe blow to the politics of morality and its culmination will depend on bargaining. 

"The Jharkhand development had dealt a big blow to the value based politics and now whatever is going to happen will depend on political bargaining," Yechury told reporters here after a programme at the Indore Press Club. 

He felt that Shibu Soren should have resigned from his Lok Sabha membership after he became Jharkhand Chief Minister. However, he remained MP as well as Chief Minister due to legal lacunae in the system. 

The decision of Soren's Jharkhand Mukti Morcha (JMM) to vote in favour of the UPA government during the opposition sponsored cut motion has led to a political turmoil in the tribal-dominated state. PTI
