The grand alliance comprising JVM-Congress-RJD is all set form the next government in the state of Jharkhand. The alliance has already won 44 of the 81 seats for which polling was held in five-phase between November 30 and December 20. The BJP had won 22 seats while the AJSU Party claimed 2 seats. Addressing reporters at his residence in Ranchi, JMM working president and Mahagathbandhan’s CM candidates, Hemant Soren said he is thankful to people of Jharkhand for giving a clear mandate to the alliance headed by his party. Congress leader RPN Singh said that the alliance will form the government under Hemant Soren’s leadership. “There is no doubt about it. Hemant Soren will be the CM. We have assured him (Soren) even before we forged the alliance with the JMM. PM Modi, Home Minister Amit Shah and UP’s CM Yogi tried to raise the temperature by taking their campaign at a new low,” he said. Meanwhile, Hemant Soren has won both the Barhait seat and Dumka seat. BJP leader and Chief Minister Raghubar Das lost from Jamshedpur East. Saryu Roy, who quit the BJP ahead if the polls, defeated Das by a significant margin. In the previous Assembly elections held in 2014, the BJP-led alliance had won a comfortable majority and formed the government under the leadership of Raghubar Das.
