People have voted for change in the second phase: JMM

People have voted for change in the second phase: JMM

Ranchi, Dec 7 (UNI) State's main opposition party Jharkhand Mukti Morch has claimed that the people on the 20 seats on which polling came to an end today have voted for change and with a view to make Hemant Soren the next Chief Minister of Jharkhand.

Addressing a press conference here, party's central general secretary and spokesperson Supriyo Bhattacharya said that enthusiasm for change was visible not only on the 14 seats of Kolhan but also two seats each of Ranchi, Simdega and Khunti district were the polls came to an end.

He said that much enthusiasm was not witnessed among the voters in Jamshedpur East as the people are fed up with the behavior of the BJP candidate for the last 25 years who has become a symbol of arrogance and dictatorship. Without taking names, Mr Bhattacharya said that the people were also fed by the atrocities committed by the members of the BJP's candidate's family on other caste and communities.

Bhattacharya claimed that the BJP will not be able to open its account in this phase and it would be a big thing for the party if it manages to save its deposit even on 2 to 3 seats. He said, on all the 17 reserved seats the BJP candidates will lose their deposits.

The JMM spokesperson said that the turnout of the people was an expression of anger by the Adivasis and Moolvasis of the state.

Over the incident in Sisai, he held the BJP responsible and accused the party of pressurising the jawans of central para millitary forces to make the people vote in favour of the BJP. He said that Baghni is a minority dominated village and therefore the happenings in the village seems to be ordered by the BJP.
