Mundaís patience plea

Ranchi, Dec. 10: Chief minister Arjun Munda has urged party heavyweights, who are fuming over the JMMís decision to support the UPA government on the FDI issue in Lok Sabha, and allies to have patience and not to engage in unnecessary war of words till he came back from the US.

Spokesperson of BJPís state unit Amarprit Singh Kale, who is seen as Mundaís right-hand man, said the chief minister would come back on December 18 or 19. Munda will preside over a cabinet meeting on December 20 where several important decisions are likely to be taken. In due course, he will address the latest controversies involving his government. The chief minister is likely to hold separate meetings with his alliance partners and party heavyweights.

Incidentally, before taking off for the US, Munda had told The Telegraph over phone that there was no threat to his government and things would automatically settle down after he returned.

Kale also spoke on similar lines. ďBoth Shibu Soren and Sudesh Mahto are sensitive leaders. They need not be told about the responsibilities that they need to shoulder in the larger interest of Jharkhand. The BJP also has an airtight alliance with JD(U). The Congress and its so-called secular allies are conspiring to bring about political instability in the state through different means. But, we would foil their game plan,Ē Kale stressed.
