Ranchi, Nov 5 (PTI) The JMM, which runs a coalition government in Jharkhand with Congress and RJD support, has rejected RJD’s offer to support each other’s sitting MLAs in the ensuing Assembly elections in the state.
“The RJD approached our leadership on the issue of seat sharing. But how is it possible when there is no alliance?” JMM General Secretary Suprio Bhattacharya said here today.
When contacted, RJD?s Jharkhand unit spokesman Manoj Kumar said, “Our party has approached the JMM with a request not to field candidates against each other in the seats where the alliance partners have sitting MLAs.”
The JMM, with which the Congress broke its alliance for the forthcoming Assembly polls but continues to support the Hemant Soren-led government, has already announced two lists of candidates and is set to declare its third list today.
With a total 81 seats, Jharkhand is going for five-phase polling beginning November 25 and today is the last date for filing of nomination papers.
