Welcoming Shibu Soren's resignation, the Congress on Sunday night said the Jharkhand Mukti Morcha chief took the right decision by not seeking a floor test.
"It is proper that Shibu Soren resigned after knowing he had no majority. It is always good to resign instead of going to the House without a majority," Leader of Opposition Rajendra Prasad Singh told PTI.
"If our high command directs us to initiate government formation, we will go ahead, if not we won't," he said when asked whether the Congress will take an initiative for the formation of government after Soren's resignation.
He said the party leaders will meet on Monday and hold discussions with pre-poll ally Jharkhand Vikas Morcha (Prajatantrik).
