Babulal Marandi files nomination from Koderma

Tuesday, 16 April 2019 | PNS | Ranchi

Jharkhand Vikas Morcha chief and former Chief Minister of State Babulal Marandi filed his nomination from Koderma parliamentary Constituency in the presence of JMM executive president Hemant Soren, former Union minister Subodh Kant Sahay, JPCC president Ajoy Kumar and others in Giridih on Monday.

Marandi, whose party is contesting from two seats as per the arrangement of the grand alliance in the State, will contest against BJP’s Annapurna Devi, a former RJD leader, who has recently joined the saffron brigade. After completion of nomination filing process the leaders joined a public meet at Jhanda Maidan in Koderma, where they pledged to root out the NDA government at the Centre. This was for the first time since formation of the grand alliance in the State that most of the political stalwarts from the Opposition’s fold gathered at a platform to showcase Opposition’s strength.

Addressing the gathering at Koderma Soren said that the leaders came together on the occasion to reaffirm the boding among partners of the grand alliance.

The only purpose of the Grand alliance is to defeat NDA candidate in Koderma at any cost, he added. “I am not fighting Lok Sabha elections for the first time from Koderma. In 2004, I had fought on BJP’s ticket and won the elections. In 2006 and 2009 I had fought and won from here. The people of the constituency had given me immense support. But, the 2019 elections are totally different. Today all the opposition parties are with me. This time people are fighting the elections not me,” said Babulal Marandi.

He further added that the fight this time is not against any individual but an ideology that is plundering the nation.

“They had made so many false promises but did not do anything in the last five years. They took five years but mostly the PM remained out of country for 22 months. People know this farce now and will root out the autocratic government from the Centre,” he said.

Notably, Marandi is fighting from his traditional seat and said to be a very strong contender from Koderma in comparison with Annapurna Devi, who has been brought to the fore by replacing BJP’s sitting MP, Ravindra Kumar Rai.
