JMM MP Mahua Maji called the decision of former JMM MLA and sister-in-law of ex-Jharkhand CM Hemant Soren, Sita Soren, to join the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Tuesday “hasty”, and said that they are all shocked by this move.
Sita Soren joined the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Tuesday. After resigning from the membership of JMM, Sita Soren tendered her resignation from the membership of the Jharkhand Legislative Assembly. She was the general secretary of the JMM.
“We are all shocked. We don’t have much knowledge about why she did this but the party is going through a crisis right now. So, I think everyone should have had some patience. This is unfortunate for our party. Elections are around the corner. Our party is strong. People like Hemant Soren worked with the guidance of Shibu Soren and Champai Soren is completing the incomplete work. So, this is a good message for even the last person. People want JMM once again and the alliance government to continue. Such decisions are hasty,” Maji said.
Meanwhile, JMM General Secretary and Spokesperson Supriyo Bhattacharya hit out at the BJP and said that how the BJP did a “use and throw” with Pashupati Kumar Paras tells the real “Chaal-Charitra-Chehra” of the party.
“I think, when someone has to go somewhere (to another party), they have to give some reason. Not everyone is Pashupati Kumar Paras, who submitted a 3-line resignation letter and thanked them. But how the BJP did a ‘use and throw’ with him tells the real ‘Chaal-Charitra-Chehra’ of the BJP. They pick up whenever they need someone. They kept senior leaders Shivraj Singh Chouhan, Vasundhara Raje, and Raman Singh with them as long as they needed them and then threw them away later,” he said.
“A CM was demoted to the position of Deputy CM in Maharashtra because they didn’t need Devendra Fadnavis. Himanta Biswa Sarma joined the BJP, won the election and directly became the Deputy CM first and eventually the Chief Minister,” the JMM Spokesperson added.
While the BJP has named candidates for 11 out of 14 seats in Jharkhand, the INDIA bloc is yet to announce its candidates. The voting process in Jharkhand will unfold in four phases, from May 13 to June 1.
In the Lok Sabha election 2019, the BJP won 11 seats with a 51.9 per cent vote share, while Congress, Jharkhand Mukti Morcha and ASJU won one seat each.
The elections for 543 Lok Sabha seats will be held from April 19 to June 1, with the counting of votes scheduled for June 4
