BJP asks JMM to shun ‘dynasty welfare’

Wednesday, 28 August 2019 | PNS | Ranchi

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Tuesday asked Jharkhand Mukti Morcha (JMM) to change the latter’s approach from “dynasty welfare” to “public welfare” in order to sustain in Jharkhand and bring positive changes.

Addressing media persons at the headquarters of the party in Ranchi, BJP’s State General Secretary Deepak Prakash accused JMM’s Executive President Hemant Soren of pressing for negative changes in Jharkhand on pretext of political agenda. “JMM is least bothered about Jharkhand’s progress. Hemant Soren only presses for negative changes,” said Prakash.

Raising questions on the frequent demands of JMM, the second largest party in the State assembly here, Prakash asked, “What change does JMM want? Is this change required for sustaining dynastic politics? Is this change required for making Jharkhand unstable? Is it for increasing corruption or looting the people or appeasing a particular group?”

Prakash said that not only the people of Jharkhand but also the workers in JMM have become aware of Soren’s intentions and are gradually withdrawing their support, which the Soren family enjoyed since decades. “The people of Jharkhand ensured a loss for Hemant Soren in Dumka assembly constituency and his father Shibu Soren also tasted failure in Dumka parliamentary constituency. The party workers who actively participated in Shibu Soren’s crusades for independent Jharkhand are now disgruntled with the party,” he added.

He said that the people of Jharkhand are satisfied with the “double engine” government led by the BJP here. “People of Jharkhand voted for stability in 2014. And they will again vote for stability and development this year,” Prakash said.

Taking a jibe at the Congress party’s decision of appointed former IPS Rameshwar Oraon as the President of Jharkhand Pradesh Congress Committee (JPCC), Prakash said that the party is yet to do away with its obsession of retired IPS officers. “The Congress party does not trust the State leadership. This is the reason why they have selected too many faces to lead the party,” Prakash said.

BJP’s National Working President JP Nadda will visit Jharkhand on Friday. During his  stay in Jharkhand, Nadda will address gatherings in Lohardaga and Gumla and meet party workers in Ranchi, said Prakash.

After winning 12 of 14 Lok Sabha seats in Jharkhand, BJP is eyeing at least 65 seats in the 81-member assembly here. The party has already started preparing for the polls. Union Home Minister Amit Shah is likely to visit Santhal Pargana next month and pass on instructions to party workers here for the polls. Prime Minister Narendra Modi is also likely to pay a visit to Jharkhand soon for inaugurating Government initiatives.
