The Congress said it would look into the proposal for government formation in Jharkhand if the Jharkhand Mukti Morcha and other secular parties came up with the issue, following the Bharatiya Janata Party's withdrawal of support to the Shibu Soren government.

"If secular parties, including the JMM, send any proposal for formation of a secular dispensation, the party will look into it and place it before the central leadership," Jharkhand Pradesh Congress Committee spokesman Radhakrishna Kishore said.

Blaming the BJP for instability in the state, he said, the Congress neither preferred President's Rule nor mid-term polls, but would like Jharkhand to be governed by secular forces.

"Only the BJP is responsible for the collapse of its five month-old alliance. It withdrew support when it did not get the CM's post and not in the interest of the state. This is evidence of BJP being power hungry," Kishore said.

Deputy chief minister and BJP leader Raghuvar Das handed over the letter withdrawing support to the Soren Government to Governor M O H Farooq on Monday.
