Ranchi, July 14: The BJP observed yesterday as “protest day” against the formation of the new government, accusing JMM/Congress of cobbling up an alliance “with the support of tainted MLAs”.
“Our leaders and party workers have observed protest day in the blocks across the state against the way the government was cobbled up with the support of tainted and charge-sheeted MLAs,” BJP's state unit vice president Deepak Prakash told reporters here.
“We have nothing against coalition governments, but the way this particular government has been formed is condemnable. Many are tainted while a few are absconding from the law,” he added.
He said the party would also protest on the day when the Hemant Soren-led government, which took oath during day, would take floor test next week.
The CPI (ML-Liberation), in a press release, observed the day as “attack on democracy”.
“The alliance is anti-democratic and against the interest of the people and the state,” the release alleged.
