New Delhi: Congress and JMM appear to be inching closer towards forming an alternative government in Jharkhand, currently under President's Rule imposed after fall of the Arjun Munda government on January 8.

Newly-appointed in-charge of the state BK Hariprasad will hold talks in this regard with state leaders of Congress and JMM on Friday in Ranchi.

Shibu Soren's party, which is supporting UPA-II government from outside, has been keen on forming an alternative government in the state in alliance with Congress ever since it broke up with the BJP in January this year.

According to sources, a large number of Congress leaders in the state are in favour of forming a government with JMM's support.
