Jamshedpur: The Jharkhand Mukti Morcha (JMM) would contest the assembly election in Bihar which is slated to be held later this year, Hemant Soren, the newly elected working president of the party said today.
We have not yet finalised how many seats we would contest but certainly we will contest the assembly election in Bihar, where we had won one seat in the last assembly poll, Soren a former Jharkhand Chief Minister said here.
We will mostly field candidates in the districts adjoining Jharkhand such as Jamui, where we have a strong base, but will take a final call in this regard only when we would receive details of party's position from the party's Bihar unit, he told newsmen.
The party's new state committee would take a decision about the Bihar poll soon, he said. Soren expressed confidence that the JMM will perform well in the Bihar election.
He said the people of the country were now realising that they committed a “blunder” by voting BJP to power in the last general election in the country as the real face of the party has started coming out now.
Describing Narendra Modi-led government as the “government of capitalists”, he said here was no difference between Union and state government in Jharkhand as their action was just opposite to what they said before election.
In fact, Jharkhand government was running by a remote control from Delhi, he alleged.
JMM will soon take to the streets against the Land Bill and the new committee of the party will soon finalise the date to stage dharna against the bill in the National capital, he announced.
