Two days after he had resigned from the BJP, Devidhan Tudu on Wednesday joined the Jharkhand Mukti Morcha (JMM). Tudu had resigned from the post of saffron party’s Pakur district president and primary membership on Monday, alleging that he was “ignored” by the party. Sitting Jharkhand Mukti Morcha MLA and former deputy chief minister Stephen Marandi welcomed Tudu and his supporters at a function here. “The JMM will be further strengthened in Maheshpur following the joining of Devidhan Tudu. The party will be benefited from his organisational experience,” Marandi said. Tudu, a farmer, had contested from the Maheshpur constituency in 2009 and 2014 assembly elections as a BJP candidate but had lost in both the elections.
