  • The BJP's fire-brand leader's barb was directed at the Jharkhand Mukti Morcha (JMM), Congress and the RJD who have come together to take on the BJP in the ensuing elections for the 81-member Jharkhand assembly.

    Addressing an election rally in Khunti on the second leg of his campaign for the assembly polls, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said people of Jharkhand have faith that BJP alone can ensure the state's development. He accused the Congress of delaying resolution of the vexed Kashmir problem and the Ayodhya dispute.

    Seats for which voting will take place on Saturday are Chatra, Gumla, Bishunpur, Lohardaga, Manika, Latehar, Panki, Daltonganj, Bishrampur, Chhatarour, Hussainabad, Garhwa and Bhawanathpur. The opposition alliance has fielded joint candidates in all these constituencies with Congress contesting six seats, JMM four, and RJD three. BJP is trying its luck in 12 constituencies.

    Going by the candidates' declaration of their age, it implies they have grown older by 1 to 13 years between the 2014 and 2019 polls.

    The second phase of polling in the five-phase Jharkhand assembly elections will be held on December 7.

    The alliance between Jharkhand Mukti Morcha (JMM) and Congress seems to be on real test in Sisai assembly constituency (ST) from where BJP nominee is Jharkhand assembly speaker Dinesh Oraon.

    The Jharkhand Mukti Morcha had taken similar decisions in previous elections with the amount ranging from Rs 5,000 to Rs 21,000, JMMs general secretary-cum-spokesman Vinod Kumar Pandey said. Asked when the first list of candidates would be announced by the JMM, Pandey said, the party would inform in due course.

    The think tank flagged schemes, largely related to women, such as Bank sakhi, Pashu sakhi, ujjwala didi, and said they have been exemplary in their impact. Public Policy Research Centre's Sahasrabuddhe said "it was the stability of the Raghubar Das government that was most important, apart from the integrity in its implementation of schemes."

    A total of 37,83,055 voters of Chatra (SC), Gumla (ST), Bishunpur (ST), Lohardaga (ST), Manika (SC), Latehar (SC), Panki, Daltonganj, Bishrampur, Chhatarpur (SC), Hussainabad, Garhwa and Bhawanathpur constituencies will decide the fate of 189 candidates in the first phase of the polls, which will be held on Saturday.

    Four opposition MLAs in the Jharkhand Assembly, including two from the Congress, one from the Jharkhand Mukti Morcha (JMM) and an independent legislator joined the ruling BJP on Wednesday, party sources said.

    Chief Election Commissioner Sunil Arora said the polls will be held in the Naxalism-affected state on November 30, December 7, 12, 16 and 20. The assembly polls to the 81-member assembly in the state were held in five phases as well in 2014. The BJP is in power in the state and an alliance of opposition parties is making a determined bid this time.
