'Will fight as long as I live' : Shibu Soren

Dumka, May 16 (UNI) Jharkhand Mukti Morcha supremo and party nominee from Dumka Shibu Soren today said that he will continue to fight the elections as long as he was alive.

" Pata nahi kab tak rahenge...Jab tak Zinda rahenge ladenge (I do not know how long I will live but will fight as long as i will live)," Mr Soren told reporters during an interaction with the media outside his residence in Khijuria here. He said that he had no issues that his own disciple Sunil Soren was contesting against him.

He said that he had no problems with Sunil contesting against him as when he would speak among the people and he would be telling them what works have been done and what needed to be done and than it is for the people to decide whom they want to vote .

He, however, did admit that development has taken place in the state despite the progress not being up to mark but he said that development is an ongoing process which will continue to happen.

When asked whether a Modi wave was blowing in the area as everywhere chants of 'Modi Modi' was going on he said that no one in Dumka was saying Modi Modi it was rather people like you (press) who are saying his name. He said that BJP was not going to gain in Jharkhand.

In his message to the people he said that he had worked a lot for their development and asked the people to continue their support to him as long as possible.

When asked about the Mahagathbandhan he said that whatever 'gathbandhan' is there it is alright and if their are any flaws than it would be also corrected.

Shibu Soren is an eight time MP from Dumka seat of the Santhan Pargana region of the state. Voting in Santhal Pargana is scheduled in the last phase on May 19. This election is being considered last for the JMM patriarch who turned 76 in January and is battling various old age related health issues.
