State BJP spokesperson Pratul Shahdeo today said that the Congress' base in Jharkhand has ended, just like the entire country.
The biggest evidence of this is that three former presidents of the party, including the outgoing PCC chief, have opted out of the party.
Pradeep Balmuchu had been the State president for almost a decade. Dr. Ajoy Kumar was the outgoing president and left the Congress comparing his fellow leaders to criminals. Pratul said that Sukhdev Bhagat also shied away from the Congress, being impressed by the development work done by the Bharatiya Janata Party Government led by Raghuvar Das. He said that the State president is the face of a party in the State and when three State presidents of the Congress are leaving the party, it shows all the situation of the Congress.
Pratul said that for how long the current State president of the Congress Rameshwar Oraon ji will be able to stay in the Congress, it is very difficult to tell, given the recent record of former Congress presidents . He said that the Congress had 14 seats in the 2009 election, which reduced to half in 2014 and the Congress will be eliminated from State in 2019.
