Ranchi, Aug 8 (IANS) Former Chief Minister and senior BJP leader Arjun Munda’s wife has refused to accept the Vice President’s position in the Jharkhand unit of BJP.
After state BJP President Tala Marandi on Sunday nominated Meera Munda as Vice President, Meera on Monday sent a letter to him declining the offer.
She said in the letter: “Through newspapers I have come to know that I have been nominated as Vice President of the party. I shall not be able to give time for the said post. I am unable to join on the above.”
There were other dissidents as well after the announcement of the state list. Some party leaders protested outside state BJP headquarter to oppose the appointment of Veer Vijay Pradhan as Yuva Morcha state president.
Marandi’s announcement was incidentally delayed following his son’s marriage. His son allegedly got married to a minor girl and is also facing allegation of sexual exploitation by a tribal girl.
