    A total of 221 candidates, including 23 women nominees, are in the fray in the elections, Jharkhand Chief Electoral Officer Vinay Kumar Choubey said here.

    The third phase of polling will decide the fate of legislators in 17 seats out of the total 81 assembly constituencies. A total of 309 candidates, including 32 women, are contesting from 17 assembly seats. The constituencies, including two reserved for SC candidates and one ST candidate, in which voting is being held are spread over eight districts in the state.

    BJP has been winning the Ranchi assembly seat since 1990 and the minister and current MLA CP Singh is a fourth term MLA from the seat. In the last elections, his challenger was from Jharkhand Mukti Morcha, a party with lesser presence in urban areas.

    Modi, who was addressing a poll rally at Bokaro, compared Jharkhand to a youth attaining 19 years and its citizens its gaurdian and appealed to the people of the state to vote for the BJP government for the second time in a row.

    Since the opposition parties mainly focused on the local issues relating to “Jal, Jungle aur Zamin” (water, land and forest) during their campaign in the last two phases, it is now time for ruling BJP to test its own popularity among tribal and OBC voters. BJP is no longer considered to be a party of "Sadan" as in mainly non-tribal after its five-year-rule.

    Almost every political party is in favour of increasing reservation benefits for OBC. BJP has promised voters it would OBC quotas, without affecting the existing quotas for STs and SCs in the state.

    An estimated 63.36 per cent votes were cast on Saturday in the second phase of election for the Assembly in Jharkhand where one person killed was in firing by security personnel near a polling booth.

    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.

    Polling will be held between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. in Jamshedpur(East) and Jamshedpur(West) constituencies, while in the rest of the 18 constituencies voters will exercise their franchise between 7 a.m and 3 p.m, an EC release said. A total 47,24,968 voters, including women and third gender voters will decide the fate of 260 candidates, the EC sources said.
