In the run up to Jharkhand Assembly elections the opposition parties got new issue as fire broke out on Wednesday night at newly inaugurated the State Assembly building and damaged it heavily. Jharkhand Mukti Morcha (JMM) on Thursday attacked on the State Government on the matter and demanded immediate probe by a high level agency.
Addressing a Press meet JMM General Secretary, Supriyo Bhattacharya attacked the government for fire engulfing the State Assembly building and said that how Prime Minister inaugurated the building three months before when the construction work was going on.
“It is clear example that how the State Government is duping people to get political mileage. The construction company had to hand over the building to the State Government on December 10, but the State Government had held a grand inauguration ceremony on September, 12 attended by Prime Minister, Narendra Modi as Chief Guest. The Rs 466 crore project gutted in fire only due to negligence of the Government,” he added.
Bhattacharya said the party Executive president and former Chief Minister, Hemant Soren had raised stern objection when the State Government was holding inauguration ceremony that the way they are holding the occasion is not right and after that the Chief Minister called a special Session of House.
The party General Secretary demanded from Jharkhand Governor for the investigation of the matter. “It should be investigated that there were arrangement or not for fire extinguisher, proper water facility and the quality of electrical equipments and the culprit should be harshly penalised after all it is money paid by the public through taxes,” he added.
Attacking the Chief Minister, he said that his commitment towards corruption has given the results to the incident. “He will have to give answer that what is his relation with construction Company. There are immense cases of corruption in his tenure,” he added.
Speaking on poll results the party General Secretary said that BJP is in contest in one or two seats where voting held in the first phase of election but in the second phase of polling which will be held on December, 7 the party will be wiped out from all 20 seats. “Even Das will bite the dust with huge margin from his Jamshedpur East seat. As people of the State identified Das and he will be penalised him for his misrule in this election,” he added.
