A delegation of Jharkhand Vikas Morcha (Prajatantric) will meet President Pranab Mukherjee on Tuesday to demand for dissolution of state assembly.

The party delegation would be led by former chief minister Babulal Marandi, party sources said here on Monday.

Some other legislators of the party would represent the delegation, the sources said.

The party has been demanding immediate dissolution of Jharkhand assembly to pave way for a fresh mandate.

Jharkhand is under President's rule from January 18 after the BJP-led government fell on January 8. The 81-member house is under suspended animation.
