BJP suffers severe setback in Jharkhand: Raghubar Das tenders resignation

Ranchi, 23/12/19: Though the final official results of the just-concluded Jharkhand assembly polls are yet to be announced, the scenario has become clear. The BJP was voted out of power, the JMM-Congress-RJD allowance, which has secured majority in the 81- member state assembly, is going to form the government.

While the magic number required for forming the government is 41, the JMM-Congress- RJD alliance is set to win more than 45 seats.

Meanwhile, bowing down the mandate,  outgoing chief minister Raghubar Das has tendered his resignation.“People’s mandate has not been in favour of BJP. Whatever has been the verdict, we respect it. I hope Hemant Soren and his government set to form the government will fulfill the dreams of the people”, said Das.

On the other hand, Hemant Soren, who heads the JMM and is set to be the next chief minister said, “It’s the victory of the people”. He said the three parties would sit together to chalk out the further course of action.

BJP was fighting the assemble elections alone, while the JMM-Congress-RJD alliance was fighting jointly against the BJP.
