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.

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.
