While Chief Minister Das is busy creating an atmosphere in favour of the BJP through a Jan Ashirwad Yatra, Jharkhand Mukti Morcha president Hemant Soren has once again embarked on a Parivartan Yatra to return to power and is busy creating an atmosphere against the BJP.

The Congress has played the tribal card here by making Rameshwar Oraon the State unit president. Babulal Marandi’s party JVM is preparing to face the electoral battle alone.

Jharkhand has a total of 81 Assembly seats. In the 2014 election, the BJP had managed to win 37 seats with 31.3% of the votes and its ally AJSU had won 5 seats with 3.7% of the vote.

The JMM had won 19 seats with 20.4% votes, the Congress had won seven seats with 10.5% vote and JVM had won eight seats with 10% vote. However, after the election, six JVM MLAs left the party and joined the BJP. Apart from this, six seats went to others.
