New Delhi, July 31 (KMS): The Congress has said that the BJP is trying to topple its coalition government in Jharkhand state.
The Congress General Secretary, Jairam Ramesh, said on Twitter, “The BJP’s ‘Operation Lotus’ in Jharkhand stands exposed in Howrah. The game plan of ‘Hum Do’ in Delhi is to do in Jharkhand what they did in Maharashtra by installing E-D duo.”
The three MLAs Ansari, Kachchap and Kongari were stopped by the police on Saturday evening in Howrah area of Indian state West Bengal after a huge amount of cash was found in their vehicle, a senior officer claimed.
The Congress said the saffron party’s game plan is to do in Jharkhand what they did in Maharashtra.

The Jharkhand Congress also said that the huge amount of cash was part of a conspiracy by the BJP to topple the Hemant Soren Government, of which it is a part along with Lalu Prasad Yadav’s Rashtriya Janata Dal.
Howrah Superintendent of Police (Rural) Swati Bhangalia had claimed, “We had specific inputs that a huge amount of money was being transported in a black car. We started checking the vehicles and intercepted this SUV in which three Jharkhand MLAs were travelling. A huge amount of cash was found in the vehicle.”
“Cash counting machines are being brought in to ascertain the total amount. The MLAs are also being questioned about the source of the money and where it was being taken to,” she added.
