Jamshedpur No Comments on Stephen not to contest from any other party 14

Jamshedpur : The senior Congress leader of Santhal Pargana Stephen Marandi, said that he will not contest from any other party. However he said that only Dumka seat should have been handed over to the JMM and Congress should have retained Rajmahal and Godda seats as these two constituencies are conventional seats of the party “The move to hand over Rajmahal seat to the JMM would spark resentment among the Congress cadres of the region, which might further have adverse impacts on the party’s prospects in the assembly election” Marandi opined, apprehending betrayal of party cadres on a large scale.

Apparently, the Congress cadres of Santhal Pargana were opposed to formation of alliance with the JMM, which according to them can dampen the party’s prospects in the region, as the place is believed to be a JMM stronghold. Top ranking Congress’ leaders too had announced that the party would field candidate from Rajmahal at a public meeting, organized to commemorate the martyrdom of santhal heroes Sido, Kanhu, Chand and Bhairavat at Bhognadih, on June 30.
