The NDA, after being denied a chance to form government in Jharkhand despite having the requisite numbers, has flown its MLAs to Delhi to parade them before the President.

Earlier, the NDA had paraded 41 MLAs before Jharkhand Governor Syed Sibtey Razi and laid its claim to form government.

Razi, however, invited the Jharjhand Mukti Morcha-led United Progressive Alliance to form the government though the combine had submitted with Raj Bhavan only a list of 36 MLAs.
