New Delhi

23-December-2019

The Congress is not leaving any stone unturned in forming the government in Jharkhand as the alliance holds edge over the BJP in the 81-member Assembly, the counting for which is underway.

The Congress has spoken to former ally Babulal Marandi whose party JVM is leading on at least 4 seats.

Sources told IANS that JVM has not given any assurance to the Congress leaders so far, but have said that the party will hold talks only after the final results are out.

The final figure is going to be clear after sometime as the Congress has started celebrating at the AICC headquarters in New Delhi with crackers and Dhols. However, many congress leaders are apprehensive if the alliance will cross the magic figure on its own.ians
