Jharkhand Lok Sabha Election 2024: Opposition's I.N.D.I.A bloc on Sunday displayed its show of strength in Jharkhand's Ranchi as the high stakes Lok Sabha elections have kicked off with first phase polling concluded on Friday. The second phase is set to take place on April 26.

At a rally by I.N.D.I.A bloc leaders, former Bihar deputy CM and RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav said, "The leaders of the BJP are speaking of finishing the Constitution again and again. It is a Constitution written by Baba Saheb Ambedkar, not by some random Baba. No one has the power to change it. In Bihar also, their ministers and candidates are saying constantly that they will finish the Constitution. The people of the country will finish you."

Ahead of the rally, posters of I.N.D.I.A  bloc leaders including Congress Parliamentary Party Chairperson Sonia Gandhi, party MP Rahul Gandhi, Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal, West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee, former Jharkhand CM Hemant Soren and his wife Kalpana Soren have been put up at rally ground in Ranchi.

"On the I.N.D.I.A bloc's rally, Shiv Sina (UBT) MP Priyanka Chaturvedi said, "My message is very clear that we are together in this fight against BJP's growing autocracy... They are not allowing the opposition to function properly; what they are trying to do is to silence the opposition. We are seeing a high rate of inflation, joblessness and women not getting a safe environment... In the first phase of the election, not many people, but those who have come out to vote have come out to change these people (BJP), who have been showing this dictatorial tendency."

Representatives of 28 opposition parties are expected to participate in Ranchi rally today. According to reports, after the arrest of former Jharkhand CM Hemant Soren in money laundering case, I.N.D.I.A bloc may push his wife Kalpana as JMM's face amid the ongoing polls.

The event called the ‘Ulgulan (uprising) Nyay rally’ will be held in the afternoon in the Prabhat Tara ground.

Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge, Rahul Gandhi, Jharkhand Chief Minister and JMM leader Champai Soren, Punjab CM and AAP leader Bhagwant Mann, and AAP Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Singh are among the top opposition leaders who will address the rally.

The I.N.D.I.A bloc will focus on the arrest of the JMM’s former Jharkhand CM Hemant Soren and Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal.

Both Kejriwal and Soren are currently in judicial custody. Their wives, Sunita Kejriwal and Kalpana Soren are expected to address the rally.

On I.N.D.I.A bloc's rally in Jharkhand, Shiv Sena (UBT) leader Sanjay Raut said, "...On behalf of Hemant Soren, his wife has spoken to me and Uddhav Thackeray as well. As you can see the campaigning is at its peak in Maharashtra, today also Uddhav Thackeray is going out of Mumbai, however, we have decided that someone from our party will surely go there (INDIA Alliance Jharkhand rally)."

Election to 14 Lok Sabha seats in Jharkhand will be held in four phases from May 13
