Jharkhand elects Hemant Soren-led JMM-INC-RJD alliance

The people of Jharkhand were so sure whom to elect that the tally of even independents and BSP reduced from their respective scores in 2014

The people of Jharkhand have expressed confidence in Hemant Soren’s promises, with the Jharkhand Mukti Morcha (JMM)-Indian National Congress (INC)-Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) alliance winning 46 seats, five more than the figure required for a majority in the State Assembly. The result has been in accordance with the predictions by most exit polls.

The coalition of JMM, INC and RJD has got the mandate to form the government. Preparations are afoot to form the next government under the leadership of Hemant Soren. The JMM will have 30 seats of its own in the new Assembly. The mahagathbandhan‘s 46 seats include 15 seats of the INC and one of the RJD. The ruling BJP has been reduced from 37 to 26 seats.

With the initial trend of counting of votes after 10 AM, news of the lotus withering started arriving. The wind of change has been such that the BJP, which had claimed it would score above 65, lost the poll comprehensively. Chief Minister Raghubar Das was unable to save the party’s reputation, leading the party to a score of nine seats less than the previous election. Despite being a partner in power, AJSU, which contested the election without an alliance with the BJP, suffered a setback, too. AJSU, which had won five seats in 2014, was reduced to just two seats this time.

The wave of change in Jharkhand has hit Das harder in the form of a severe defeat from Jamshedpur East seat. His minister Raj Palivar lost from Madhupur while Lois Marandi from Dumka. Assembly Speaker Dinesh Oraon lost his Sisai seat to the JMM. Ramsundra Sahis, a minister from AJSU in the government, lost from the Jugasalai Assembly constituency. State BJP president Laxman Giluwa has been defeated in Chakradharpur. Former Chief Minister Babulal Marandi, who has been continuously losing elections, has but returned to the Assembly.

At around 3 PM, BJP candidate from the Torpa constituency Koche Munda had opened the first account of victory for the party. After this arrived the news of BJP’s Neelkanth Munda winning Khunti. Then the slide began.

After the first two wins, the news of victories of the candidates of the opposition alliance started pouring n from everywhere in the State. JMM and INC supporters across Jharkhand began distributing sweets, drowned in celebrations.

On 25 December, the governor is expected to issue a notification for the formation of the new Assembly of Jharkhand. Chief Electoral Officer Vinay Kumar Choubey said that on 24 December, the governor would hand over the list of MLAs who had won. He said that, with the handing over of the list of candidates won to the Election Commission, the remaining procedure will follow.
