Gandhi’s have time for CM MK Stalin but not for Hemant Soren

GG News Bureau
New Delhi, 22nd June. Jharkhand Mukti Morcha chief minister Hemant Soren is livid at the indifferent treatment meted out to him by the mother-son duo from the Gandhi family in Delhi.
Hemant Soren who was in Delhi to discuss the possible reshuffle in the Council of Ministers and appointments to corporations had camped for four days in the national capital but failed to meet Congress chief Sonia Gandhi or senior leader Rahul Gandhi.
Soren’s suffering did not end here as Gandhis found time to interact with MK Stalin CM Tamil Nadu from DMK a close ally of Congress but gave the Jharkhand chief minister a miss.
After failing in his attempts to get an audience at the Durbar of the Gandhi family, Hemant returned to Ranchi on Saturday.
Such an indifferent attitude towards JMM by Congress could prove costly as the snub has not gone down well as could contribute to the mistrust among the two coalition partners. The fear is that if the situation is not rectified it could result in the breakup of the coalition which could trigger a possibility of JMM- BJP alliance in near future thus proving to determinantal for Congress in the long run.
However, the senior congress leaders from Jharkhand have refuted all claims of the rift and have come out with the clarification that Sonia Gandhi could not meet Hemant due to her busy schedule considering the adverse developments in Punjab, Rajasthan and Maharashtra as well. In Punjab, the Congress is embroiled in the tussle for power between Navjot Sidhu and Amarinder Singh while the tussle between CM Ashok Gehlot and Sachin pilot in Rajashtan is giving sleepless nights to the congress.
Jharkhand Congress chief and Finance Minister in Hemant’s Government, Rameshwar Oraon also accompanied Soren to Delhi to discuss pending issues with Congress.
Both the JMM and the Congress have staked claim to the vacant 12th berth in the Soren Cabinet. Besides the CM, the JMM has five Ministers while the Congress has four and other ally RJD one ministerial berth.
