Hours after resigning from the Jharkhand Mukti Morcha (JMM), Sita Soren, the elder daughter-in-law of party chief Shibu Soren, switched allegiance and joined the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Tuesday. Notably, she has also tendered her resignation from the post of MLA. 

After joining the BJP, Sita Soren said, "I worked for the party (JMM) for 14 years but I never got the respect I deserved from the party. Due to this, I had to take this decision (to join BJP). Expressing my confidence in PM Modi, JP Nadda ji and Amit Shah ji, I joined the BJP today. We have to save Jharkhand and the lives of our tribal brothers. There is a need for change in Jharkhand."

Sita Soren quits JMM

Earlier in the day, Sita Soren tendered her resignation from the party, citing allegations of being sidelined along with her family. In her resignation letter addressed to the party's supremo and her father-in-law, Shibu Soren, Sita expressed her grievances, stating that following the demise of her husband, Durga Soren, the party failed to provide adequate support to her and her family.

Why Sita Soren resigned? 

Sita lamented and said she was feeling neglected and reluctantly decided to tender her resignation from the primary membership of the party. She also voiced her disappointment, indicating a deviation from the party's core values by accommodating people whose principles do not align with its ethos. "I have become aware of a conspiracy being orchestrated against me and my family. I am left with no choice but to tender my resignation," she added.
