Simdega: In an advice to ally Jharkhand Mukti Morcha (JMM), Chief Minister Arjun Munda said the process of development should be on the fast-track "irrespective of whichever government" was in power.
    
"I will talk only on development now as I have set out on 'Vikas Yatra'. I will speak on politics on a different forum," Munda told reporters here.
    
He was replying to a query on JMM supremo Shibu Soren's claims that Soren had an agreement with the BJP leadership that both the parties would share the rule 28 months each.
    
Munda, however, said the progress of the state should be rapid irrespective of whichever party was in government since Jharkhand was already lagging behind other states in terms of development.
    
It was the seventh time that Soren had claimed on the '28-month-each-side ruling pact' after BJP, JMM, JDU and AJSU stitched the alliance on September 11, 2010. Soren had backtracked on all the previous claims.
