In a dramatic turn of events in Jharkhand, the Congress party has raised serious concerns over the delay in inviting Champai Soren to form the government, accusing it of violating the constitution and undermining the people’s mandate. Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge took to social media to express his discontent, sharing a video of Congress and JMM MLAs and accusing the Governor of strangling Indian democracy.

Despite having the support of more than 41 MLAs in the 81-member House of Vidhan Sabha, Champai Soren has not been extended an invitation to form the government, alleges Kharge. The Congress leader went on to claim that this delay is indicative of political injustice, with Prime Minister and Home Minister being perceived as orchestrators.

Jairam Ramesh, another prominent Congress leader, expressed his concerns, labeling the situation as yet another example of political injustice where the expertise of the Prime Minister and Home Minister is seemingly directed towards manipulating democratic processes. Ramesh emphasized that the prolonged delay provides an opportunity for the dubious practice of buying and selling MLAs, deeming it not only unfair but also detrimental to the very essence of democracy.

Adding fuel to the fire, Congress leader Abhishek Singhvi questioned whether the central government harbors intentions to impose President’s rule in Jharkhand. Singhvi speculated that the Governor might be awaiting instructions from the offices of the Prime Minister and the Union Home Ministry, raising suspicions about the BJP’s alleged plan to create an opposition-free India before the general elections.

The unfolding crisis has stirred debates on the floor of the House and beyond, with various political figures expressing their concerns over the perceived erosion of democratic values. Opposition parties are uniting in their demand for immediate action, calling for transparency in the government formation process and accusing the ruling party of attempting to subvert the democratic will of the people.

As the political temperature rises in Jharkhand, citizens are left in suspense, eagerly awaiting a resolution to the crisis. The allegations of foul play and manipulation, if proven true, could have far-reaching consequences not only for the state but for the broader political landscape of the country. The coming days will likely witness intensified political maneuvering, as stakeholders grapple with the challenges posed by this unprecedented constitutional crisis in Jharkhand.
