The political uncertainty in Jharkhand entered its 21st day on Monday even as BJP leader Arjun Munda, entrusted by the party to explore government formation in the state, continued parleys with the allies.

Munda, who met Chief Minister Shibu Soren last night soon after his party gave him the responsibility, went to Soren's residence here again during the day.

However, it was not known whom he had met - Soren or his son Hemant, the JMM Legislature Party leader.

A senior JMM leader and close aide of Hemant told PTI that a section of the party still wanted the JMM supremo to continue as the Chief Minister.

‘Let us see what is in store," said the leader, whose statement corroborated party vice-president and MLA Champai Soren's remark.

"We still want Guruji (as Shibu Soren is popularly known) to continue as Chief Minister and there is no need to oust him midway," Champai Soren said in Jamshedpur.

Asked whether Munda met AJSU president and Deputy Chief Minister Sudesh Mahto, party vice-president Pravin Prabhakar said Mahto was out of station.

"We hope for an early solution to the political uncertainty," he added.

Meanwhile, the opposition has accused BJP of indulging in horse trading and making a mockery of the democratic system. PTI
